Welcome to EO Radio Show – Your Nonprofit Legal Resource. This Nonprofit Basics episode is the second of a three-part series on election year activities for public charities and private foundations.

Part 1 addressed the prohibition on intervention in candidate campaigns for elected office. Part 2 focuses on legislative lobbying activities by public charities.

Cynthia Rowland addresses permitted educational and advocacy activities, the definition of lobbying, and the two different rules that apply to public charity legislative lobbying under the subjective test of Section 501(c)(3) or the elective test for charities that make the 501(h) election, which allows for an objective limitation on lobbying expenditures.
