Lobbying and Electioneering for Nonprofits

Lobbying and Electioneering for Nonprofits

Thursday, September 13, 2018 - 1:30pm to 3:00pm EDT

Nonprofits should consider every year an election year. And every session of the Congress, state legislature, or local government offers the possibility of public policy change that can significantly affect the work of nonprofit organizations. 

Therefore, nonprofits are concerned about what they may and may not do to influence elections and public policy. This webinar will discuss those issues with particular emphasis on the limitations on lobbying and electioneering by charities.  It will also offer practical advice on setting up relationships with legislators so that your voice can be heard when an issue is pending that can affect your work.

Nonprofit Issues® editor Don Kramer will discuss how charities can lose their federal income tax exemption if they participate in political campaigns at any level.

He will also discuss how charities may take positions on legislative issues and why they may not be doing their job if they fail to do so. What counts as "lobbying" under the federal regulations? Do they have to worry about lobbying registration requirements?

If your organization, your clients, or your issues are affected by public policy, you will want to participate in this webinar.
