Want to Renew Your Commercial Fundraiser Registration Early?

The Secretary of State’s Office notifies registered Fundraisers by regular mail and email 45-60 days before the expiration date of their current registration with the Charities Program.  However, a Commercial Fundraiser may renew its registration at any time after the close of the organization’s accounting year, but no later than the deadline noted in the chart below.

The Commercial Fundraiser Registration / Renewal form is available at the Charities Web site at http://www.sos.wa.gov/charities/AllForms.aspx.  Certain financial information from the organization’s most recently completed accounting year is required; please have your financial records available for reference. 

If you’re uncertain which accounting year to report or have other questions, please contact the Charities Program directly at commercialfund@sos.wa.gov or by phone at 360-725-0378.
