The Nebraska Attorney General’s Office is also pleased to announce an update to the charities section of its website at protectthegoodlife.nebraska.gov. The website now allows for the electronic submission of certain documents and notices required by law to be provided to the Attorney General’s Office, including but not limited to, annual form 990-PFs, notice regarding a nonprofit dissolution, and notice regarding a charitable trust. These additions supplement the material regarding charities available on the website including an online complaint form to submit if you suspect wrongdoing by a charitable entity or misuse of charitable assets, tips for donors regarding wise giving, and additional information regarding nonprofit corporations, charitable trusts, and endowment funds. These changes will make working with the Attorney General’s Office more efficient for Nebraska’s charitable sector.
