The Charitable Solicitation Licensing Division maintains a registry of organizations licensed to solicit charitable contributions within the state. In addition, the Division license professionals who fundraise on behalf of those organizations. The Division also responds to consumer concerns regarding charitable solicitations, and works to enforce the Charitable Solicitation Law on behalf of all North Carolina.
"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."
