Every domestic nonprofit, credit union and consumer cooperative corporation must file a Statement of Information with the California Secretary of State, within 90 days after the filing of the initial Articles of Incorporation, and biennially* thereafter during the applicable filing period. The applicable filing period for a corporation is the calendar month during which the initial Articles of Incorporation were filed and the immediately preceding five calendar months. A corporation is required to file this statement even though it may not be actively engaged in business at the time this statement is due. Changes to information contained in a previously filed statement can be made by filing a new form, completed in its entirety. *Credit unions and consumer cooperative corporations are required to file annually instead of biennially.

(Sections 6810, 8810, 9690, or 12670; California Revenue and Taxation Code section 19141.)
Fees: The fee for filing the Statement of Information is $20.00.

Complete the Statement of Information (Form SI–100) as follows:
Item 1. This item has been pre-filled with the corporate name, number and address of record. If the corporate name has changed, you must formally change the name by filing a Certificate of Amendment of Articles of Incorporation with the California Secretary of State.
Item 2. Enter the complete street address, city and zip code of the corporation's principal office in California, if any. Please do not enter a P.O. Box or abbreviate the name of the city. Note: A credit union must enter the street address of the corporation's principal office, if any, whether the office is located in or outside of California.
Item 3. Enter the mailing address of the corporation, if different from the street address of the principal office in California or if the corporation has no principal office in California.
Items 4-6. Enter the name and complete business or residential address of the corporation's chief executive officer (i.e., president), secretary and chief financial officer (i.e., treasurer). Please do not abbreviate the name of the city. The corporation must list these three officers. Any number of offices may be held by the same person unless the articles or bylaws provide otherwise, except, in the case of a nonprofit public benefit or religious corporation, neither the secretary nor the chief financial officer or treasurer may serve concurrently as the president or chair of the board (Sections 5213 or 9213). Please note, unless the articles or bylaws provide otherwise, the president, or if there is no president, the chair of the board, is the chief executive officer of the corporation. Additionally, unless otherwise specified in the articles or the bylaws, if there is no chief financial officer, the treasurer is the chief financial officer of the corporation.
Item 7. Enter the name of the agent for service of process in California. An agent is an individual (director, officer or any other person, whether or not affiliated with the corporation) who resides in California or another corporation designated to accept service of process if the corporation is sued. The agent must agree to accept service of process on behalf of the corporation prior to designation.
If an individual is designated as agent, complete Items 7 and 8. If another corporation is designated as agent, complete Item 7 and proceed to Item 9 (do not complete Item 8).
Note: Before another corporation may be designated as agent, that corporation must have previously filed with the California Secretary of State, a Certificate Pursuant to Section 1505. A corporation cannot act as its own agent and no domestic or foreign corporation may file pursuant to Section 1505 unless the corporation is currently authorized to engage in business in California and is in good standing on the records of the California Secretary of State.
Item 8. If an individual is designated as agent for service of process, enter a business or residential street address in California (a P.O. Box address is not acceptable). Please do not enter "in care of" (c/o) or abbreviate the name of the city. If another corporation is designated as agent, leave Item 8 blank and proceed to Item 9.
Item 9. Enter the title and name of the person completing this form. By submitting this Statement of Information to the Secretary of State, the corporation certifies the information contained herein, including any attachments, is true and correct.
