Article of Interest: Donor Beware!

As the holiday season approaches, Governor Hogan and Secretary of State Wobensmith warn Maryland citizens to beware of deceptive practices!

Charitable organizations that solicit from the public in the state of Maryland must file annually with the secretary of State Charities Division.  A charitable organization may required a reviewed or audited financial statement to be submitted with the annual registration.  The requirement threshold is determined by the charitable contributions received during the organization’s tax year.  These thresholds have changed effective October 1, 2016 as discussion in the update provided by the Secretary of State’s Charities Division.

To view this update, please visit the Charitable Organizations Division on Maryland.gov’s website.
