Be sure to lobby by the rules
Abstract: Most nonprofits are involved in lobbying at one time or another. But what are the rules not-for-profits must follow when participating in these activities? The answer depends on the type of organization, what kind of activity it’s conducting and how much lobbying is involved. Lobbying is different from political activity (which is prohibited to charities), and there’s a distinction between direct and grassroots lobbying. But certain actions are permitted without restrictions and aren’t considered to be lobbying.
