State registration by charitable organizations
Ohio requires charitable organizations and groups that ask Ohioans for contributions to file annual reports with the Attorney General’s Office. These filings are public and contribute to accountability and transparency within the charitable sector.
Groups are required to use the online system to fulfill their duties under state law. Multiple individuals from each organization are encouraged to create accounts in order to receive reminders on filing deadlines, confirmation of filings, and other important information.
Use of the online system is mandatory for all charitable organizations. The online system replaces all previous forms used for filings.
For information, 1-800-282-0515.

Booster Group Registration
Most Ohio charities must make annual filings with the Ohio Attorney General’s Online Charitable Registration System. Groups registering for the first time must provide a copy of their by-laws, constitution, or other governing documents and a federal tax exemption determination letter from the IRS, if one exists. To register your charity with the Ohio Attorney General’s Office: http://www.ohioattorneygeneral.gov/charitableregistration.
At least three leaders with each organization are encouraged to open an account in the Attorney General’s system so they can receive email reminders and confirmations of registration activities for the organization. Questions about the registration requirements or the system should be directed to the Attorney General’s Charitable Law Section at 1-800-282-0515 or email at CharitableRegistration@OhioAttorneyGeneral.gov.
