Is my proof of Charitable Registration indicating that my organization is in good standing with the Office of the Secretary of State the same as "Good Standing?"
No, it is not. Under the Maryland Solicitations Act, a charitable organization soliciting in Maryland generally must file documents with the Office of the Secretary of State. Registration is required prior to the commencement of solicitations. The type of registration required depends upon the level of charitable contributions received by a charitable organization.
