Non-Profits & Charities Document Search

Search Page Help
To run the "Non-Profits & Charities Document Search," enter a Charity Name, AG Account Number, or Federal Tax ID (FEIN) and click the Submit Charity Search button.

The following field formatting is required to run the search:

Charity Name Field: You can choose whether to run a "starts with," "contains," or "exact match" search on the word(s) entered in the Charity Name field. Select the Starts with the Word option to search for all charity names that begin with the value you enter in the field. Select the Contains the Word option to search for all charity names that contain all of the words you enter in the field (in any order). You can also select the Exact Match option to search for all charity names that contain all of the words you enter and in the exact order specified in the field. Please note that you must enter at least three characters to run a "starts with" or "contains" search.




  • Example of a "Starts With" Search: A "starts with" search for the Charity name "Boston" would return all Charities that start with the name "Boston"; such as "Boston Cares", "Boston Foundation", and "Boston Incorporated".

  • Example of a "Contains" Search: A "contains" search for the Charity name "Found" would return all Charities that have the word "Found" in the Charity name; such as "New Found Hope, Inc.", "Boston Foundation", and "Founders, Inc.".

  • Example of an "Exact Match" Search: An "exact match" search for the Charity name "Helper" would return all Charities that are exactly named (and stored on file as) "Helper". Please note that if you are unable to find a Charity using an "exact match" search, you can try a "starts with" or "contains" search to obtain a more broad set of results.

  • AG Account Number Field: Enter all AG Account Numbers in a six digit format. If you have an AG Account Number that is made-up of only four digits, insert two zeros (0) at the beginning of the account number. For example, an AG Account Number of "1234," would be entered as "001234."



    Federal Tax ID (FEIN) Field: Enter all 9 digit FEINs with a dash after the second digit (e.g., "11-1223333").
