Charity and Commercial Fundraiser Search

Organizations that fundraise in the state of Washington for charitable purposes are required to register with the Secretary of State's Charities Program. Registration data is taken directly from each organization's registration application. The Charities database allows the public quick access to this useful information. Registration does not constitute approval by the Secretary of State or by the state of Washington.

The search functions below may be used to look up information on charitable organizations and commercial fundraisers registered with the Secretary of State under Washington's Charitable Solicitations Act. To conduct a search, please enter the organization's name or partial name. You may also conduct a search by entering one (or any combination) of the search criteria listed below.


*"Percent to Program Services" is the percentage of total expenses an organization expended on program service-related activities during the financial year reported. The financial information used to calculate this percentage is obtained directly from registration documents submitted by the organization.
