All public charities doing business in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts must register with the Non-Profits/Public Charities Division and, thereafter, file annual financial reports with the AGO. Upon registration, the AGO will assign the public charity an Attorney General Account Number (AG Number). Any charities that wish to solicit funds must also obtain a "Certificate for Solicitation" before engaging in fundraising activities.
As of September 2014, the Short Form PC is no longer being accepted as a registration document.
Please follow the appropriate link below for registration instructions, which vary slightly depending on whether the charity is based in Massachusetts, and whether it is registering after the end date of its initial fiscal year.
