Special Program: Advocacy and Lobbying for Nonprofits

Tuesday, December 12, 2017 9:30 am - 11:00 am 
In-person | New York, NY

In collaboration with New York Lawyers for the Public Interest, the Nonprofit Coordinating Committee of New York, and the Human Services Council

Check-in: 9:15 am

Nonprofits play a vital role in advocating for social issues as well as informing and influencing public policy. Many nonprofit executives are unclear about laws surrounding lobbying and political activity. In the face of our current social and political climate where a rapid response is often required, it’s important for nonprofits to stay abreast of regulations around advocacy and lobbying.

Join us for a seminar where skilled attorneys will help you learn about:

  • what is and what is not considered lobbying;
  • how much lobbying a public charity can do;
  • what the federal tax rules related to advocacy and lobbying are; and
  • what your organization needs to do to protect its tax status while engaging in these activities.
