A free access online database of charities and professional fundraisers who solicit donations from Michigan residents and businesses is now available.
The database accesses information from charity and fundraisers’ reports filed with Michigan’s attorney general.
At www.michigan.gov/AGCharitySearch, visitors can access information including:
- Entity’s charitable purpose
- Recent financial data
- Federal tax-exempt status
- Contact information
- When, where the entity was created
Charities soliciting donations in Michigan also can use the website to confirm its registrations and to verify licenses of professional fundraisers.
State attorney Bill Schuette announced the launch Wednesday.
