Disclosure Requirement for Solicitation of Contributions Pursuant to New York State Executive Law § 174-b
New York’s Executive Law requires that solicitations of contributions by or on behalf of a charitable organization, which is required to register and file annual financial reports with the Attorney General’s Charities Bureau, must include a statement that a copy of its latest annual report may be obtained, upon request, from the organization or from the New York State Attorney General’s Charities Bureau. The statement must include the addresses of the organization and the Charities Bureau (Charities
Bureau, 120 Broadway, 3rd Floor, New York, New York 10271).
If a charitable organization has not previously been required to file an annual report with the Charities Bureau, the solicitation must state the date when the annual report will be filed.
Please review all of your solicitation material to ensure that it contains the required statement, including the address of the Charities Bureau.
