Legal Quick Hit: "Expanding Your Advocacy and Political Reach: Adding a 501(c)(4) to Your Nonprofit's Org Chart" for the Association of Corporate Counsel's Nonprofit Organizations Committee

This event has already occurred.

Most know that 501(c)(3) organizations are limited in their lobbying and are prohibited from engaging in political activities. Learn how adding a related 501(c)(4) entity can help your nonprofit expand its advocacy and political activities. This Legal Quick Hit will explain what a 501(c)(4) can and cannot do, and dive into the nuts and bolts of how to operate such a related organization. We will discuss things such as board size and composition, dual management roles for executives, shared employees, licensed intellectual property, multiple websites, and other issues that arise when trying to keep related organizations separate. We also will discuss how the recent uproar over 501(c)(4)s at the IRS might affect your options.
