Does taking a stand on executive actions qualify as lobbying under federal tax law? Can your foundation talk about candidates, officeholders or proposed legislation on social media? Can private foundations fund nonprofits that lobby?
As we find ourselves knee-deep in a polarizing election season — and continue to grapple with headline-churning developments impacting everything from healthcare and reproductive rights to national security and environmental stewardship — questions abound about what sort of advocacy foundations can pursue without running afoul of the law.
The Funders Network invites you to join Abby Levine, director of the Bolder Advocacy Program at Alliance for Justice, for a TFN Learning Call, Can We Even Do That?!?: Advocacy, Elections and Philanthropy on Sept. 30 from 3 to 4:14 p.m. ET.
Join us to learn more about how grantmakers can support advocacy and participate in policymaking decisions, while gaining a deeper understanding of federal tax and election law.
We’ll share the fundamentals of what foundations can and can’t do to support election season activities and other advocacy questions that may be bedeviling your organization at this extraordinary moment in time.
We will also make space for Abby to answer specific questions from our attendees, so be sure to submit any queries in advance when you register for this event.
