Staying Nonpartisan: Guidelines for 501c3 Voter Engagement Activities

Presented by: Nonprofit VOTE

Nonprofit organizations are encouraged (and in some cases, required) to assist the people they serve to participate in elections. This often includes voter registration drives, GOTV reminders, candidate engagement, and ballot measure advocacy. But what, exactly, are nonprofits allowed to do and how can they be sure they don't cross the partisan threshold?

Join Nonprofit Vote on August 13th as David Levitt, Principal at Adler & Colvin, sheds light on the IRS guidance around tax-exempt voter engagement. Mr. Levitt's practice focuses on the representation of nonprofit and tax-exempt organizations, with an emphasis on program-related investments, social enterprise, political advocacy, and nonprofit corporate governance.
