Trump Foundation lacks the certification required for charities that solicit money - Fahrenthold


Donald Trumpís charitable foundation ó which has been sustained for years by donors outside the Trump family ó has never obtained the certification that New York requires before charities can solicit money from the public, according to the state attorney generalís 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 Trumpís must also submit to a rigorous annual audit that asks ó among other things ó whether the charity spent any money for the personal benefit of its officers.

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

The Trump campaign did not respond to a request for comment Thursday.
