Charitable Database Information and Disclaimer:

Please read the information and disclaimer below before proceeding to the Charitable Database search page. You must agree with the conditions set forth in the disclaimer in order to enter the site. Thank you.


CHARITABLE DATABASE

Welcome to the Illinois Attorney General’s Charitable Database. Illinois law requires charitable organizations which solicit and/or hold charitable monies in Illinois to register and file annual financial reports with the Attorney General's Office. These annual financial reports provide a valuable source of information to help you ascertain a particular charity’s programs, activities, grants, finances, and priorities. The Charitable Database allows you to search for public charities and private foundations which are registered in Illinois by name, registration number, FEIN #, city, state and/or zip code. Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan provides this Charitable Database to expand public access to the information charities are required to file with her Office. In reviewing these reports, you must remember that the charity – not the Attorney General – prepares these reports.

Disclaimer of Endorsement

The registration of any charitable organization with the Office of the Illinois Attorney General does not constitute an endorsement by the State of Illinois or the Office of the Illinois Attorney General. Moreover, the inclusion of a charitable organization in the Charitable Database does not indicate in any manner that the Attorney General supports, sanctions, or verifies the information of such charitable organization. Inclusion in the database indicates that a charitable organization has minimally complied with the registration and annual reporting requirements imposed on it by Illinois law.

Disclaimer of Completeness and Accuracy of Data and Reports on this Website

The information contained on this website is taken from information provided to the Illinois Attorney General by charitable organizations filing registration and/or annual report materials with the Illinois Attorney General pursuant to the Charitable Trust Act (760 ILCS 55/1 et seq.) and the Solicitation For Charity Act (225 ILCS 460/1 et seq.). The Illinois Attorney General’s Office does not edit or control the financial materials/information it receives, and cannot guarantee the accuracy, quality, completeness, or validity of any information or reports on its website.

Disclaimer of Omissions from this Website

This website is intended as an informational tool only and is being made available as a public service. The absence of information relating to any charitable organization does not mean that such charitable organization is not registered or otherwise not in compliance with the Charitable Trust Act (760 ILCS 55/1 et seq.) and/or the Solicitation For Charity Act (225 ILCS 460/1 et seq.). The Illinois Attorney General disclaims any responsibility for any errors or omissions on this website.

Disclaimer of Use of Information and Documents Obtained from this Website

This Charitable Database does not contain every document filed with this Office by charitable organizations that are listed on this database. Any person who uses information and/or reports obtained from the Charitable Database as an exhibit in any legal document and/or proceeding does so at his or her own risk. The Illinois Attorney General does maintain a record of every charitable organization ever registered with this Office pursuant to the Charitable Trust Act (760 ILCS 55/1 et seq.) and the Solicitation For Charity Act (225 ILCS 460/1 et seq.), including past and current charitable registration statements and annual financial reports.
