August 9, 2023 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm UTC+6
What can your 501(c)(3) organization do with respect to politics and legislation? What is strictly prohibited?
Recent political and social events have prompted many businesses to vocalize their opinions about legislation and/or elected officials. While businesses carry a powerful voice in politics and social issues, 501(c)(3) organizations have strict limitations when it comes to influencing legislation and supporting or opposing political candidates. Violating these laws may result in the revocation of your organization’s exempt status.
