Nonprofits and the Political Process

Available: In Stock
Price: $69.00
Item Code: 09576-BK


Nonprofit organizations are often in existence to promote a cause, advocate for people or organizations, or provide services to their membership. One of the most effective ways of advocating for a cause or raising awareness is through the political process working to help pass legislation or elect a candidate whose ideals are in line with those of the organization. Many nonprofit entities also enjoy special tax benefits which come with restrictions on what kinds of political activities the organization can engage in. An organization needs to know what rules and regulations apply, how to find them, and how to be sure they are in compliance with all of the applicable federal, state and local rules, ordinances and regulations. It is not an easy job and failure to comply can carry very serious consequences. Explore these questions for 501(c)(3) charities, 501(c)(4) civic associations and social welfare organizations, 501(c)(5) unions, 501(c)(6) trade associations, and 527 PACs. Learn everything you need to know about federal, Pennsylvania, and local reporting and registration obligations.
