Below are regularly posted or updated Registry reports.
Charity Registration Reports
Available for download below are lists of charitable organizations that may or may not operate or solicit in California. Registration and reporting compliance with the Registry is indicated by the Registry Status. Registry Status definitions are available on the Registry Verification Search Tips & Filing Definitions page.
The lists are in comma separated value (CSV) format and updated on the third Wednesday of each month. CSV files may be opened by a number of applications, including Microsoft Excel. For details about the data included in the CSV files, review Charity Registration Reports Data Legend (PDF).
Organizations with a Registry Status in italics are not registered. Some may operate because they are reviewed as exempt from registration and the Supervision Act does not prohibit these entities from soliciting or operating, while others may not operate in California as they are not exempt from registration.
The downloadable lists are not complete as they omit data on non-California (and some California) entities we are unaware of given our data resources.
Latest and additional data for each listed organization is available through the Registry Verification Search tool. Potential donors are encouraged to research organizations using the search tool and those available from the Secretary of State, Franchise Tax Board and IRS to determine an organization’s tax-exempt status. Donors may also want to review our Resources and Donation Tips.
