Many attorneys general are charged with the regulation and oversight of charitable organizations and charitable solicitation in the United States. The Charities Enforcement and Training Fund Committee is responsible for evaluating grant requests and disseminating grant funds received from settlements for the benefit of attorney general offices and other members of the National Association of State Charities Officials (NASCO), including a secretary of state or those individuals holding an equivalent office.
These funds can be used for:
- Expenses related to the investigation and litigation of civil and criminal cases involving charities.
- Training and educational programs for attorney general staff and members of NASCO.
Committee members are appointed by the NAAG president and approved by the NAAG Executive Committee. Members must also be on the NAAG Charities Committee.
