Legal Alert - Soliciting Charitable Dollars in Nevada? New Law Requires State Registration for Most Organizations.
by Stephen B. Yoken and Craig R. McPike
The State of Nevada now requires non-profit corporations that solicit charitable contributions to register and provide certain information to the Nevada Secretary of State. This information will be a matter of public record and will be posted on the Secretary of State’s website. The law became effective January 1, 2014, and generally puts Nevada on par with the majority of other states in the country. Not only does the new law help the state police those organizations holding themselves out as soliciting funds for public benefit, it also provides Nevadans and other interested parties with more information to help them when deciding where to allocate their charitable dollars.
