TO ALL BROKER-DEALERS REGISTERED IN MISSISSIPPI:  We do not require the filing of yearly financial results directly with the Division.

Through regulation and enforcement of the Mississippi Securities Act and the Charitable Solicitation Act, the Securities and Charities Division of the Office of the Mississippi Secretary of State is responsible for protecting investors and donors in the State. Through new legislation drafted and supported by the Office of the Secretary of State, the Securities and Charities Division has been armed with the most up-to-date Securities and Charities laws in the nation to protect Mississippians from unscrupulous organizations that might prey on our citizens. With the vigorous enforcement of these new laws, the Securities and Charities Division protects Mississippians –the most generous people in the nation—and does everything it can to keep their hard-earned investments secure.

Each year, the Secretary of State’s office kicks off a “Check your Charities” campaign during the holiday season.  We encourage Mississippians to check their charities with the Secretary of State’s Office before they donate.  Mississippians are some of the most generous in the nation, and we urge you to check your charity to ensure your hard earned dollars are wisely spent.

Our website breaks down the percentage of funds expended for the intended charitable purpose.  To search the financial information of your charity on our website, click here http://www.sos.ms.gov/securities_and_charities_securities_search.aspx .
