Descendants of the Magna Charta

Further to my post made yesterday about the "other" societies of descendants of the Knights of the Garter, it has now been brought to my attention that the same signatory's appear on the certificate for another descendants organisation.

Perhaps, if they are charitable organisations it would be possible to view their accounts and charitable status? I know that it is quite easy to view the goings on of charities in England simply by searching the Charities Commission website however, I'm not familiar with how things work in the US (perhaps each state has different rules and requirements). Either way, if these really are charities, they ought not be afraid of questions as to their activities. In fact, I would go so far as to say that, if they are charities, then any questioning of their activities should be not only encouraged but welcomed.
