Legal Stuff

100 Fundraising Ideas (USA) is a website for sharing fundraising ideas. The material on this site is for informational purposes only. It should not be used as a substitute for legal advice on fundraising matters.

Requirements for the registration of charities and fundraising laws vary by state. The National Association of State Charity Officials (NASCO) oversees government charity offices throughout the United States. Consult your state charity office if you have questions about fundraising for your cause.

In addition, you should receive permission from all relevant parties before you start fundraising. This includes (but is not limited to): charity, property owner, work supervisor/principal (if applicable) and the local government.

Happy fundraising!
