Charitable Registration

Maryland Nonprofits’ partnership with COGENCY GLOBAL means that members receive a discount on COGENCY GLOBAL’s fundraising registration/renewal, sales tax exemption, registered agent and state corporate compliance services.

Is keeping up with fundraising and corporate compliance requirements becoming an administrative burden for your organization? COGENCY GLOBAL can help! They offer a full range of services to help nonprofits comply with state charity offices and maintain their good standing in all states. When you choose their “white glove” charitable solicitation (fundraising) registration compliance service, all of your nonprofit annual reports, renewals, exemptions, and extensions are filed on time with the required supporting documents. COGENCY GLOBAL’s responsive, experienced service specialists will ensure that the proper state-specific forms are used and that required filing procedures are adhered to. When you work with COGENCY GLOBAL, you will also be kept informed of new laws, procedures, and rules that affect your nonprofit’s ongoing compliance. A range of services at different price points allows you to decide how much of the process you want to outsource vs. handle yourself.

COGENCY GLOBAL also offers sales tax exemption services to help ensure that your organization is taking full advantage of legally available tax exemptions. This can be a challenge for nonprofits to handle themselves given the complexity of state tax laws and regulations combined with the lack of uniformity from state to state and among different taxing authorities within a state. Maryland Nonprofits member organizations can save time and focus more on their missions by outsourcing the management of state and local tax exemption services to COGENCY GLOBAL.

Discounted registered agent and state corporate compliance services are also available to Maryland Nonprofits members, which can result in significant annual savings.
