The Charitable Registration & Investigation Section administers and enforces the provisions of the
Charitable Registration & Investigation Act
(CRI Act). The CRI Act regulates the fund raising activities of most charitable organizations and all professional fund raisers, fund-raising counsels, commercial co-ventures and solicitors conducting business within this State by requiring them to register and file annual financial reports with the Charitable Registration Section. To ensure that an organization and/or a professional fund raiser soliciting you is currently registered, please search our
Directory of Registered Charities or call our Charitable Registration Hotline at (973) 504-6215. Section phone hours are Monday thru Friday, 9:00am - 4:30pm.
If your charity is holding a fund raising bingo or raffle event (which includes a "casino night") please review the Bingo and Raffles process instructions in the registrants' section below. All other, information including application forms, are available at the:
Legalized Games of Chance Control Commission.
