Have Your Questions about Operating Coalitions and Affiliated Organizations Answered

Do you have questions about working in coalitions composed of 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4) organizations? Is your 501(c)(3) organization thinking about forming a 501(c)(4) to engage in lobbying and political activities?

Bolder Advocacy has been hearing from nonprofits from across the country that are working to resist attempts to roll back progressive policies and are fighting back against proposals to enact devastating cuts to vital social service programs. Organizations are wondering how to structure their work to remain in compliance with applicable laws and regulations that govern nonprofit advocacy. Working in coalitions or forming affiliated nonprofit organizations can help maximize limited advocacy dollars, but there are rules that govern how organizations can work together.

It’s not too late to sign up for Bolder Advocacy’s webinar, “How to Manage 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4) Affiliated Projects and Coalitions,” which will be held on Thursday, May 25 at 2pm EST. This webinar will offer tips and guidance on topics that include best practices for (c)(3)-(c)(4) work, social media and website presences, managing expenses and fundraising, as well as information on the types of political and advocacy activities that are permissible for  501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4) organizations.
