California Regulation of Charitable Fundraising Platforms Part 2 - Reporting Due Diligence, Recordkeeping, and Disclosure Rules

April 22, 2024 Podcast
EO Radio Show - Your Nonprofit Legal Resource

Welcome to EO Radio Show - Your Nonprofit Legal Resource. This episode covers the provisions of California’s Charitable Fundraising Platforms law (Gov. Code, § 12599.9) relevant to all covered charitable fundraisers and fundraising platforms soliciting in California. Although this is a California law, it is of nationwide interest.

The California Attorney General rulemaking has just become final, and several of the new provisions of Title 11 of the California Code of Regulations (CCRs) became effective March 26, 2024. Additional provisions will become effective on June 12, 2024 and January 1, 2025.

Today, we cover the details of the reporting obligations, due diligence for the platforms, disclosure and consent requirements, and recordkeeping recommendations for charitable fundraising platforms and platform charities.
