Lobbying is not only legal – it’s an essential means for your organization to advance your mission! Whether it's fighting a ballot measure or passing pro-active legislation, there are many reasons that 501(c)(3) public charities choose to lobby to achieve their policy goals. This workshop will explain what lobbying is and why it is so important. This training will address issues such as: how the tax law permits lobbying for nonprofits, other types of advocacy nonprofits can engage in, one easy step most charities can take to maximize the amount they’re allowed to spend on lobbying, and tips for taking advantage of the narrow definition of lobbying.
