Ballot measures are a powerful method for people to create policy change. Every state allows people to pass laws directly through some form of ballot measure—whether initiative, referendum, constitutional amendment, or tax levy. Nonprofit organizations and foundations can get involved in campaigns to support or oppose ballot measures, which is a form of lobbying.

Our online ballot measure toolkit will provide you with everything you need to know about tax-exempt organizations and ballot measure advocacy.
