Webinar on Lobbying, Advocacy & Political Activities for 501(c)(3)s

On September 20, 2017, I led a free flash class with Donor Search on the basics of lobbying, advocacy, and political activities for 501(c)(3) organizations.

Many nonprofits shy away from engaging in advocacy or lobbying activities, often due to confusion regarding the permissibility of such activities.  But advocacy and lobbying can be powerful tools for a nonprofit in advancing its mission, amplifying its voice, and increasing its impact, particularly in a volatile political climate.  In this class, we briefly cover the basic federal tax laws that apply to 501(c)(3)s with respect to advocacy, lobbying, and election-related activities.
