Disclose It: A Charitable Nonprofit’s Guide to Disclosure – Standards for Excellence Educational Resource Packet (13)


Because nonprofits serve important public purposes, nonprofit organizations are granted exemption from most federal, state, and local taxes, and donors are granted a tax deduction for contributions to 501(c)(3) charities. All nonprofits should comply with both the letter and the spirit of federal and state laws, which require disclosure of certain information to the public. This educational packet includes a summary of public disclosure requirements for charitable nonprofits including:

  • Solicitation and Fundraising
  • Deductibility of Donor Contributions
  • Receipts and Acknowledgements
  • Financial Documents that Must be Provided Upon Request
  • Contests, Sweepstakes, and Promotions

Attached at the end of this packet you will find the customizable companion document:
Maryland Specific Disclosure Requirements.
