State Registrations for Solicitations per State Laws

As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization serving all fifty US States, the Pollinator Stewardship Council is required by law to register in those states requiring “foreign” (out of state) nonprofits to register in order to conduct business in those states.  If a state is NOT listed, there is no requirement to register.  Due to the excessively high annual audit thresholds or similar financial burdensome requirements, at this time we do not solicit funds in the following states: West Virginia, District of Columbia.


A COPY OF THE OFFICIAL REGISTRATION AND FINANCIAL INFORMATION MAY BE OBTAINED FROM THE APPLICABLE REGULATORY DEPARTMENT/ DIVISION WITHIN EACH STATE (LISTED BELOW) BY CALLING TOLL-FREE WITHIN THE STATE.  REGISTRATION DOES NOT IMPLY ENDORSEMENT, APPROVAL, OR RECOMMENDATION BY THE STATE.
