“By doing that you are essentially saying that donors should be suspicious of charity,� said Nancy Berlin, policy director for the California Association of Nonprofits headquartered in San Francisco, Calif. “It’s a buyer-beware kind of label.� Berlin categorized the bill as a “misplaced attempt at trying to increase transparency.� Resources already exist to help potential donors determine whether a charity is doing good work, and Form 990s are readily available.

The fear is that the required link would negatively impact giving and that implementation of the bill would be expensive for charities to comply with and for the state to enforce. Any charity, worldwide, that seeks donations from California residents would have to redesign webpages and reprint brochures, posters and other materials, Berlin said.
The association has collaborated with state legislators in the past on transparency efforts, but has not been consulted on Assembly Bill 2855. “We have not been involved in crafting the bill. We are not anticipating any stakeholder process at the moment and we think, what would be much better, would be to stop this bill at this point,� Berlin said. If the issue needs to be explored further, Berlin recommended a meeting of the minds including the Attorney General’s office, local charities and other stakeholders.
Assembly Bill 2855 passed out of the Assembly Privacy and Consumer Protection Committee last month. The proposal is set for a hearing before the Assembly’s Appropriations Committee at a yet-to-be-determined date, Berlin said.
