Advocacy 101: The Rules
The first webinar in a three-part series that will empower you as a nonprofit advocate and prepare you for the 2024 legislative session.
501(c)(3)s play an important role in educating the public about policy issues and actions taken by elected officials. They also have the opportunity to utilize their expertise to educate elected officials, and even express preference for or against pieces of legislation. After this workshop led by Bolder Advocacy, you will have a clear understanding of how to maximize your advocacy, the kinds of advocacy activities 501(c)(3)s can engage in, and when a communication is considered lobbying.
Participants will learn:
- How federal tax law permits lobbying for charities and how lobbying is defined;
- One easy step most charities can take to maximize the amount they're allowed to spend on lobbying;
- Yearly lobbying limits for charities; and
- Tips for taking advantage of the narrow definitions of lobbying – which will help charities make the most of their lobbying limit.
