The Charities Division is responsible for the registration and regulation of all charitable organizations and fund-raisers who solicit contributions in Mississippi. The division is also responsible for the investigation of charity complaints and/or violations to the State’s charitable laws.
Each year, the Secretary of State’s office kicks off a “Check your Charities” campaign during the holiday season. We encourage Mississippians to check their charities with the Secretary of State’s Office before they donate. Mississippians are some of the most generous in the nation, and we urge you to check your charity to ensure your hard earned dollars are wisely spent.
