Registration Forms for Charitable Organizations
The Charities Program has changed how renewal reminders are issued. Charitable organizations will now be notified of the need to renew their registration by letter, rather than by postcard. The letters will be mailed approximately 60 days prior to the registration expiration date.
Watch Your Mailbox for Renewal Reminder Letters!
The Charitable Renewal Form contains fillable fields. Once completed you must print and mail the renewal form to the Charities Program with the appropriate filing fee. Please download and complete the form.
