After more than 30 years serving in regulatory and compliance roles for large corporations, Theresa (Mulford) Bornbach tired of seeing life changing, hardworking charitable organizations and their executives and board members penalized for failure to register their charity.

Serving clients in the United States and across the globe from Europe to South America to Africa and everywhere in between, we make charity registration easy through our affordable, per state, flat-fee service.
