Organization: National Association of Area Agencies on Aging (n4a)

In partnership with the Leadership Council of Aging Organizations (LCAO), n4a is offering a webinar hosted by the Alliance for Justice aimed at helping local nonprofit organizations better understand what lobbying is and why it is so important. Lobbying is not only legal – it’s one of the most effective means for nonprofits to advance their missions! Whether influencing your state’s budget, protecting OAA programs, Medicaid and Medicare, or supporting livable communities, there are many reasons that 501(c)(3) public charities choose to lobby to achieve their policy goals. 

This training addresses:

  •  How federal tax law permits lobbying for nonprofits
  •  One easy step most charities can take to maximize the amount they’re allowed to spend on lobbying
  •  Yearly lobbying limits for charities
  •  Tips for taking advantage of the narrow definitions of lobbying – which will help charities make the most of their lobbying limit
  •  The application of these rules to ballot measure activities
