Because Illinoisans rely heavily on the services provided by charities, Attorney General Lisa Madigan encourages consumers to practice wise charitable giving.
Under Illinois law, fundraisers and charitable organizations are required to register each year with the Attorney General's office. Potential donors may then access important information such as income, expenditures, programs and administration before giving to the charity.
In the links below, consumers will find valuable information and tips on donating wisely. Charitable organizations and professional fund-raisers will find specific information on reporting requirements, rules and statutes, and the forms necessary for registering and reporting as required by law.
