States require charities soliciting funds within a State to register with the State agency responsible for regulating charities. World Reach is registered in each State where it is required to do so. As a faith-based, religious organization, several States exempt our ministry from solicitation registration.
World Reach is a 501(c)(3) exempt organization under the Internal Revenue Code. Donations to World Reach are qualified for Federal and, in some cases, state income-tax deductions, as allowed by law.
World Reach is headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama. Residents of the States below may request information as indicated.
