Multistate Registration and Filing Portal

The Single Portal Initiative

Council on Foundations Comments on RFI

April 06, 2016 by Brent Culberson

Recently, the Council on Foundations submitted a letter in response to the RFI. A copy of the letter is available at

In the letter, the Council welcomed the development of the Single Portal Initiative, saying that

the Council believes a single online portal to accomplish the aforementioned requirements will indeed maximize efficiency, data transparency, and information sharing for charities in a way that is less burdensome, but will still allow states to act to protect or regulate the charitable environment.

The Council congratulates the stakeholders who are moving this important initiative forward. We have been part of talks regarding this issue for several years, and recognize the progress you’ve made to build consensus among numerous states and numerous government agencies.

We are greatly appreciative of the Council’s RFI response and their support of this initiative.

The RFI will remain open until April 8, 2016.
