Capacity Building Event

Lobbying With Confidence

Legal Tips for Nonprofit Advocates

Presented by: Alliance for Justice

Lobbying is not only legal – it’s one of the most effective means for nonprofits to advance their missions! Whether to influence your state’s budget, protect Medicaid, or pass marriage equality, there are many reasons that 501(c)(3) public charities may choose to lobby to achieve their policy goals. Federal law allows 501(c)(3) public charities (including houses of worship and public foundations) to lobby within generous limits. This webinar will address:

  • How the tax law permits lobbying by public charities
  • One easy step charities can take to maximize the amount they’re allowed to spend on lobbying
  • How much lobbying your charity can do each year
  • Tips for taking advantage of the narrow definitions of lobbying – which will help charities make the most of their lobbying limit
  • The application of these rules to ballot measure activities
Date/Time: Thursday, July 25, 2013 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm
