States try to crack down

This nationwide database, the first of its kind to bring disciplinary records together in one place, includes 8,237 regulatory actions taken by states against all kinds of charities and solicitors. The charities on our list of AMERICA'S WORST appear 94 times in the database.

Most of the actions in this database involve charities that are not among the worst in America. Many of the actions are related to registration issues, including late registrations.

You can sort results by column, and you can click on an organization to explore the details of the actions taken.
