Pennsylvania Statutes Title 10 P.S. Charities and Welfare § 162.12. Records to be kept by charitable organizations, professional fundraising counsels and professional solicitors;  inspection;  retention

Every charitable organization, professional fundraising counsel and professional solicitor subject to the provisions of this act shall, in accordance with the rules and regulations prescribed by the department, keep true fiscal records as to its activities in this Commonwealth as may be covered under this act, in such form as will enable them accurately to provide the information required under this act.  Such records shall be made available for inspection upon demand by the department or the Office of Attorney General.  However, names, addresses and identities of contributors and amounts contributed by them shall not be considered a matter of public record and, therefore, shall not generally be made available for public inspection, shall not be used for a purpose inconsistent with this act and shall be removed from the records in the custody of the department at such time that such information is no longer necessary for the enforcement of this act.  Such records shall be maintained for a period of at least three years after the end of the period of registration to which they relate.
