Examples of common r easons for non - renewal of registration: A common reason for filing the BCO - 2 is that a previously - registered charitable organization solicited and receive d gross national contributions of $25,000 or less in a fiscal year and did not compensate any person who conducts solicit ations. Charitable organizations which subsequently receive more than $25,000 in contributions must file the appropriate registration statement within 30 days after the contributions ar e received. If an o rganization that has solicited and r eceived $25,000 or less in its immediately preceding fiscal year end , has s olicit ed and receive d in excess of $25,000 in its present fiscal year , then it should not complete and file a BCO - 2 for this immediate ly preceding fiscal year . The reason for this i s that exceeding $25,000 requires registration and the appropriate Another reason for filing the BCO - 2 is that a previously - registered charitable organization dissolved. If that is the case, attach documentation of dissolution , such as Articles of Dissolution. A third rea son for filing the BCO - 2 is that a previously - registered charitable organization ceased soliciting in Pennsylvania. I f that is the case, provide the date that solicitation in Pennsylvania ceased. Non - renewal vs. voluntary registration: Charitable organizations which are no longer required by law to register under the Act may also continue to register voluntarily using the BCO - 10 (Charitable Organization Registration Statement). A charitable organization which is not compensating any person who conducts solicitations and has gross annual contributions which vary being above and below the $25,000 registration threshold may wish to consider maintaining its registration voluntarily by filing the BCO - 10 (and not filing this BCO - 2 when annual contributions are less than $25,000 ). A ll exempt ions from registration are applicable only as long as the organization continues to me et the exemption. Once a charitable organization receive s more than $25,000 in co ntributions during a given fiscal year , then this exemption is no longer ap plicable and a registration statement must be filed within 30 days after the contributions in exces s of $25,000 are received . Maintaining a voluntary registration where contributions fluctuate around $25,000 will assist the charitable organization in maintaining compliance with the Act and help the charity not to incur mandatory late filing fees if a r egistration is not timely filed within 30 days o f contributions exceed ing the $25,000 threshold.
