Alabama Fundraising Regulation Update

If your organization (professional fundraiser, professional solicitor or commercial co-venturer) is registered with the Alabama Attorney General to solicit charitable contributions, on-going compliance can now be fullfilled through the new online portal effective immediately.  Renewal applications, contracts, bonds and other documents can be uploaded directly onto the site.  This site also accepts credit or debit cards to process payment.  Paper forms and checks will no longer be accepted for registration processing in Alabama.
