State Do-Not-Call Lists
Where to obtain state do-not-call lists varies by state. While many states have merged their do-not-call information with federal lists, some still maintain an independent registry. For more information, review the state laws prior to running your campaign.

- A non-profit charitable organization may be exempt. However, the organization must be a truly non-for-profit organization. Having been granted tax-exempt status does not always qualify as exemption for purposes of the National do-not-call registry.
- Your organization does not engage in ‘telemarketing,’ or ‘telephone solicitation’ activities, as defined by the FCC and FTC.
As cited in the FTC’s and FCC’s rules, your organization may be exempt if it only makes calls to:
- Solicit charitable contributions.
- Your organization already has an established business relationship with call recipient.
- Call recipient has provided written permission to receive calls.
- Your organization only makes business-to-business calls.
If you are a for-profit telemarketer, you are NOT EXEMPT.
- If you are uncertain about the status of your organization’s exemption, you may wish to consult with an attorney.
