Is it legal for a nonprofit charity to give all proceeds to a calling center
1 Answer from Attorneys
No...charities much get solicitation licenses from the North Carolina Secretary of State. Then they must be accountable for the money they receive and must be prepared to provide a report to where the money goes.
I will add that charities often have overhead expenses so, it never happens that 100% of the money goes to the actually charitable purpose of the organization. The charity may have utility, rent, employee, and other costs to account for. If you have information that a charity is a scam, you should report it to the NC Secretary of State.
