This seminar will examine the rules around advocacy and lobbying by nonprofit tax-exempt organizations in Washington State. There are many misconceptions about whether and to what extent nonprofits can engage in lobbying and advocacy. Nonprofits can do some advocacy, but there are limitations and specific rules regarding the type and amount of advocacy that nonprofit tax-exempt organizations can do. We will explore the Washington State law registration requirements and the Federal tax law restrictions on tax-exempt organizations that do advocacy and lobbying. Local experts will talk about best practices on managing nonprofit advocacy work.
