Event Description

Lobbying and Electioneering for Nonprofits
Thursday, September 13 | 1:30 PM – 3:00 PM | Webinar

Presented by: Don Kramer, Editor and Publisher, Nonprofit Issues

Moderated by: Tish Mogan, Standards for Excellence Director, PANO

Offered in Partnership with: Nonprofit Issues

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

Therefore, nonprofits should know what they may and may not do to influence elections and public policy. This webinar will discuss those issues with 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.

Don and Tish will discuss:

  • How charities can lose their federal income tax exemption if they participate in political campaigns at any level.
  • How charities may take positions on legislative issues.
  • What counts as "lobbying" under the federal regulations.
  • Lobbying registration requirements.

CPE & CLE credits are available for this program; to receive credit you must register through Nonprofit Issues.
