Nonprofit Basics: How To Withdraw a Foreign Charity From California Registration

August 21, 2023 Podcast
EO Radio Show – Your Nonprofit Legal Resource

Welcome to EO Radio Show – Your Nonprofit Legal Resource. I'm Cynthia Rowland, and in today's episode, I'll touch on the steps necessary to withdraw the registration from the California Registry of Charitable Trusts of a nonprofit that is a foreign corporation.

In episode 49, I covered the dissolution of a domestic California nonprofit corporation and the procedures necessary to accomplish the withdrawal of that type of entity. Part of that process includes notification to the California Attorney General's office of the circumstances of the dissolution and a request for the Attorney General to permit the dissolution of the California nonprofit.

When a foreign nonprofit dissolves, or if it simply wishes to withdraw from California, the foreign nonprofit also has to reach out to the California Registry of Charitable Trusts and follows certain similar procedures to withdraw effectively.
