Faith-based nonprofits and their employees, directors, officers, and volunteers often care deeply about political affairs. And for good reason. The political candidates we elect and the laws our governments enact seriously impact religious liberty, the work of faith-based nonprofits, and many issues central to preserving our civic life. But there is a well-known tension: faith-based nonprofits with 501(c)(3) status are limited in their ability to advocate for political issues and candidates. This resource explains the basics on lobbying, issue advocacy, and campaign activity for 501(c)(3) organizations and includes a sample policy to protect your organization.
