The Importance of State Registration

Forty-one states require nonprofits to register and report annually to solicit contributions. Most organizations solicit by some combination of online, physical, and in-person activities, triggering registration requirements in multiple states, if not nationally. Nonprofits should take proactive steps to register and avoid the risks and costs associated with noncompliance.

Boards and leadership should treat registration as part of their duty of obedience to the organization. By registering, the organization further builds trust with donors and demonstrates accountability to the public it serves.

Labyrinth is now part of the Harbor Compliance family! As a result, you can choose from two great solutions to meet the compliance requirements of each state. Read the announcement here.

    Client Success Stories

    One of the best vendor decisions we’ve ever made. I don’t know why we ever wrestled with all our state compliance filings in house. Labyrinth took all of the pain out of the process, and at a price point that made the decision obvious.
     ~ Mark Ernest – STETSON UNIVERSITY
    Labyrinth made obtaining licenses for our out of state satellite office a breeze! Their customer service is top notch! They always respond to my requests within a day if not sooner. I sleep well at night knowing that Labyrinth is in our corner! They take the guess work out of state licensing! Don’t bother looking for another company! Let Labyrinth navigate the web of confusion for you!
    ~ Cheri Crider – AMIRAH INC.
    We’ve used Labyrinth for over seven years now and I have found their work and customer service to be great. Never had a single problem with all our state charity registrations over the years. We’ve been moving work being done by other companies to Labyrinth (like corporate registrations) to Labyrinth because we trust their work. Highly recommended!
    ~ David L ~ NAMI
    Great experience working with Labyrinth for business and charitable registrations.
    ~ Elizabeth Ingenthron – A Jewish Voice for Peace, Inc.
    Labyrinth is incredible! They have been managing our state registrations for about five years, and it has made our work so much easier. They save us time and effort, and they always come through for us. Highly recommended!
    ~ Ron Carter – CHILDREN, INC.
    Amazingly proactive and throughly professional, and competent. Nice people, too!
    ~ Tracy Brown – NATIONAL ROWING FOUNDATION, INC.
    They take all my worries away! They take care of all of Vitae’s registrations, charitable, corporate, sales tax applications, federal and state employee program applications, and advise on anything you need. They are wonderful!!
    ~ Gail Quigley – VITAE FOUNDATION
    The expertise, timeliness, and responsiveness of the Labyrinth team is excellent. They have been a lifesaver to our organization.
    ~ Lois Riddick – ASIA FRONTIER OUTREACH – USA, INC.
    State registrations for charity compliance? No, thank you! I DO NOT want to understand it. THANK YOU Labyrinth, you are worth every penny & all whom I’ve worked with have been great.
    ~ Diana Mansour – visionSynergy
    We trust the professionals at Labyrinth with all our registration and reporting needs!
    ~ Christine Dorchak – GREY2K USA WORLDWIDE, INC.
    I have been very happy with Labyrinth. They are always on top of everything and have helped me tremendously with all my state registration filings.
    ~ Mickey Aboff – JBI INTERNATIONAL
    We are a growing nonprofit organization with donors in all 50 States. Labyrinth has allowed us to comply with the myriad rules and regulations in every State. We do not have the time, nor the expertise, to handle this on our own. Labyrinth has made it so easy for us to get into compliance!
    ~ Daniel Leischner – AFRICA NEW LIFE MINISTRIES INTERNATIONAL
    The staff at Labyrinth are very good at their jobs. They stay on top of the filings and provide a complete turn key service. I recommend using Labyrinth.
    ~ Charles Feeney – UNIVERSITY OF VERMONT FOUNDATION, INC.
    My organization operates in nearly every state. Yet, like many non-profits, we are thinly staffed for admin and other back-office operations. We do not have the capacity to stay on top of every state’s charitable registration laws and/or filing requirements. Labyrinth does that for us and does it at a very reasonable rate. I would highly recommend Labyrinth for any non-profit that has multiple state charitable registration filings.
    ~ Jan Bigelow – B’NAI B’RITH YOUTH ORGANIZATION, INC.
    Labyrinth made the entire process of filing for state authorizations to solicit an easy and very smoothly delivered process. After we supplied the necessary information to them, very little time was required on our end other than filing the forms in our shared drive! Definitely recommend this company!
    ~ Deb Cullinan – NAPO, INC.
    Very helpful in navigating charitable registrations for non-profits. They are also very knowledgeable about other aspects of non-profits and are always ready to help. A wonderful organization.
    ~ Marilyn Gurtman-Oppenheimer – ZAMIR CHORAL FOUNDATION
    Labyrinth has been a godsend for us! Highly recommend them–they do a great job of keeping us compliant with required states across the US and have GREAT staff/customer service.
    ~ Brooke Brown – NA KEIKI O EMALIA
    I’ve had great experiences with Labyrinth across two organizations, I definitely recommend their services!
    ~ Killjan Anderson – USA BASKETBALL
    We recently changed providers for our state registrations and Labyrinth has been professional, attentive, and the staff is very knowledgeable. They have even saved us money compared to our previous provider. Thank you Labyrinth!

    We would be lost without the team at Labyrinth. Their work is accurate, quick and they are responsive.

We can’t thank Labyrinth enough or recommend them highly enough.
