Approximately 40 states require charitable organizations to register with a state regulatory agency prior to engaging in any solicitations for contributions. What you may not know is that these states also prohibit charitable organizations from using the services of non-registered fundraisers and counsel, and that failure to comply may subject your organization to severe civil penalties.
Pennington & Company has undergone the tedious and expensive process necessary to secure registrations in all states that have such a requirement, including posting in excess of $600,000 in bonds with those states that require such a financial commitment.

We believe compliance with the registration statutes is just one more differentiator in our ability to serve you.
