Can My Nonprofit Be Involved in Advocacy and Lobbying?

Nonprofits can and should be involved in advocacy and lobbying activities for issues that affect their work and their community. There are certain rules to note, an overview of which can be found HERE. It is important to note that nonprofits cannot participate in electioneering, which means they cannot support or oppose a specific candidate for office; however, individuals working for these organizations may campaign for a specific candidate separate from their work with the organization.
