ATTENTION: Due to the IRS COVID-19 relief efforts and in compliance with the law, the expiration date for renewal registrations due by May 15, 2020 has been extended to July 15, 2020. However, filers wishing to file the renewal registration today may do so at this time, and are encouraged to file now. You may contact the Division at or 601-359-1599 for additional information. ​

The Charities Division is responsible for the registration and regulation of all charitable organizations and fundraisers 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.​​

Please note: beginning July 1, 2017, commercial co-venturer filings must be submitted online.
