Lobbying and Advocacy by Associations


Learn how lobbying and advocacy can help your nonprofit.

Free speech is balanced against the privilege of maintaining a tax-exempt organization. 501(c)(6) organizations may engage in an unlimited amount of lobbying so long as the lobbying is related to the organization’s tax-exempt purpose. 501(c)(6) organizations can also now fund independent expenditures to support or oppose federal candidates– but cannot be coordinated with campaigns. This white paper reviews other 501(c)(6) limitations and discusses the Honest Leadership and Open Government Act.
