Worried about annual filings and compliance requirements? Check out the updated Nonprofit Compliance Checklist. . . and register for our Compliance Webinar!

What is the Nonprofit Compliance Checklist? It outlines the who, when, and what of compliance rules for nonprofits in California, all in one-place, with links to the forms, instructions, and frequently asked questions.

We created this resource because we’ve received a lot of questions from nonprofits wondering if there was a list with all of the state and federal compliance requirements they need to meet. We’re proud to say more than one nonprofit staff person has said “thank you for saving me all the work of tracking these down myself!”

Want to see a presentation on these requirements? You can watch a webinar with Erin Bradrick, Senior Counsel at NEO Law Group and Jan Masaoka, CEO of CalNonprofits. The webinar is free for CalNonprofits members and $10 for not-yet members. Click here for more information and to order the webinar recording. 

Our recent updates to the checklist make it easier to determine which requirements apply to your nonprofit, if, for example, you sponsor raffles, have employees, sell merchandise, or claim a property tax exemption. Wondering if you’ve missed any state filings? It tells you how to check.

Please take a look at the updated version and share it with your networks: CalNonprofits Nonprofit Compliance Checklist.
