Webinar 101: The Legal Rules for Advocacy that Every Nonprofit Should Know

Host Organization: BoardSource


Leaders of 501(c)(3)s play an important role in educating policy makers, as well as the public, about policy issues and actions that impact their organization’s mission and the people they serve. Elected officials vote on bills, make public statements and executive decisions, or take other actions that may be consistent with or conflict with a nonprofit’s position on an issue. After this workshop, you will have a clear understanding of how to maximize your organization’s advocacy efforts, the kinds of advocacy activities 501(c)(3)s can engage in legally, when a communication is considered lobbying, and how to remain nonpartisan while engaging in election-related activities. This is an introductory level but all experience levels are welcome and will leave with a better understanding of the rules.
