Depending on your nonprofit’s certification you are under different laws surrounding the kind of legislative positions you can take. This is an area in which I have very little knowledge but am curious about. I wanted to reach out to you as nonprofit professionals all over the states regarding what you know about legislative advocacy.
What is the limit of the advocacy a 501(c)(3) can do? Can you support political candidates, bills that affect or do not affect your organization, or encourage your supporters to legislate on your behalf?
If you could post a comment and share what your organization does regarding advocacy, that would be extremely helpful. Make sure to include your nonprofit’s status or whether you’re a government agency.
