NEW! The CSL Division recently sent a renewal mailing to entities with a license expiration date of November 15, 2014. There was an error on the mailing labels where incorrect contact persons were associated with some mailing addresses. In the event that your organization receives a letter from CSL addressed to an individual not associated with your organization, please open that mailing as it includes your annual renewal information. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

"North Carolinians are known for their generosity and willingness to help their neighbors. While there are many deserving organizations that need our support to continue their good works, we all want to ensure that our hard-earned money is going to be spent wisely when we donate to our favorite causes. A quick call to our Charitable Solicitation Licensing Section can help you educate yourself about an organization's background before you make a donation.  In short, I advise all North Carolinians to "check before you write one."
