Colorado Secretary of State: changes for charitiy e-filings


The Colorado Secretary of State’s Charities Program is making some changes to our e-filing system to allow multiple users to log in and complete filings on a registrant’s behalf. These changes will take effect on Thursday, April 20, 2017.


Until now, each registrant was issued one login, and the user ID was the organization’s EIN. Going forward, each user will have his/her own user ID and password and can be associated to multiple organizations, and each organization can have multiple users.  In addition, a new type of login is being introduced to allow third-party preparers to assist charities and fundraisers with their filings.


We have converted most of the existing user accounts to the new format. Beginning Thursday, April 20, users will be able to login with their email address as the user ID and existing password. We contacted a subset of users whose logins could not be converted without more information, and we received responses from two-thirds of that group. If you were converted to the new format or responded to our earlier email, you’re good to go and no action is necessary.


If you cannot login after April 20, you will need to contact the organization’s primary authorized officer for assistance, or, if they have left the organization, you will need to contact our office for assistance.


Please visit the Charities and Fundraisers website for more details about the key features of the new system.
