Trump Foundation Lacks the Certification Required
for Charities That Solicit Money

Donald Trumps charitable foundation  which has been sustained for years by donors outside the Trump family  has never obtained the certification that New York requires before charities can solicit money from the public, according to the state attorney generals office.

.

Under the laws in New York, where the Donald J. Trump Foundation is based, any charity that solicits more than $25,000 a year from the public must obtain a special kind of registration beforehand. Charities as large as Trumps must also submit to a rigorous annual audit that asks  among other things  whether the charity spent any money for the personal benefit of its officers.

.

If New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman (D) finds that Trumps foundation raised money in violation of the law, he could order the charity to stop raising money immediately. With a courts permission, Schneiderman could also force Trump to return money that his foundation has already raised.

.

Schneidermans office declined to comment on whether it was investigating the lack of registration for the Trump Foundation. Schneiderman had previously launched an investigation of the foundation in the wake of reports by The Washington Post that Trump used his charitys money to make a political gift, to buy paintings of himself and to settle legal disputes involving his for-profit businesses.

.

Tax filings show that in each of the past 10 years for which there are records, the Trump Foundation raised more than $25,000 from outsiders. Tax records alone do not reveal whether the donations amounted to solicitations under New York law, but in several cases there is strong evidence that they did.

.

For instance, the foundation has received more than $2.3 million from companies that owed money to Trump or one of his businesses  but that were instructed to pay the foundation instead, according to people familiar with those transactions.

.

In the most obvious example of a public solicitation, the Trump Foundation set up a website early this year to collect small-dollar donations that it promised to pass along to veterans. In all, the website said, the Trump Foundation took in $1.67 million through that site.

.

But, as of this week, the Trump Foundation had not obtained the state registration required to ask for donations, according to a spokesman for Schneiderman.

.

Experts on charity law said they were surprised that Trumps foundation given its connections to a wealthy man and his complex corporation  did not register to solicit funds.

.

Hes a billionaire who acts like a thousandaire, said James J. Fishman, a professor at Pace Universitys law school in White Plains, N.Y. He said Trumps foundation seemed to have made errors, including the lack of proper registration, that were more common among very small family foundations.

.

.

In 2005, Trumps wife, Melania, was named Godmother of a new ship launched by Norwegian Cruise Lines. As part of its agreement with Melania Trump, the cruise lines said, it gave $100,000 to the Trump Foundation.

.

snip

.

In the meantime, Trump himself drastically reduced his gifts. After 2008, tax records show he stopped giving altogether. Since then, according to tax records, the Trump Foundation has received all of its incoming money more than $4.3 million  from other donors.

.

Under state law, charities that solicit donations from others in New York must register under a different law, called 7A for its article heading.

.

snip

.

Then, this year, Trump skipped a Republican primary debate in Iowa and instead held a televised fundraiser for veterans causes. As part of that effort, he set up a website, donaldtrumpforvets.com, which took donations via credit card  and sent them to the Donald J. Trump Foundation.

.

Over 1,670,000 raised online, said the thank-you message from the Trump Foundation, after The Post made a $10 donation in March.

.

The most important consequence of not registering under the more rigorous 7A level was that the Trump Foundation was not required by the state to submit to an annual audit by outside accountants. In such an audit, charity-law experts said, the accountants might have checked the Trump Foundations books  comparing its records with its outgoing checks, and asking whether the foundation had engaged in any transactions that benefited Trump or his businesses.

.

In recent years, The Post has reported, Trumps foundation does appear to have violated tax laws in several instances.

.

In 2013, it gave a donation to a political group supporting Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi (R)  despite a ban on nonprofit groups making political gifts. The Trump Foundation then filed an incorrect tax filing, which omitted any mention of that gift, and said incorrectly that the money had gone to a charity in Kansas. Trump paid a $2,500 penalty tax for that political gift this year.
