Did you know that:
It’s perfectly legal for charities to lobby?*
If your charity doesn’t lobby, you are in danger of missing an opportunity to help those you serve?
Depending on your charity’s total annual expenditures, it can spend up to $1 million each year on lobbying?
Many of the major social changes in our nation have come from voluntary sector lobbying and advocacy, including —
Protection of women’s rights, child labor laws, stricter laws against drunk driving and smoking, requirements for safe drinking water and clean air, civil rights, disabled persons’ rights and many, many more?
Lobbying for Your Cause. You Can Do It!
* As used here, charity excludes private foundations and churches, their integrated auxiliaries, and conventions and associations of churches. As used here, the term churches includes synagogues, mosques and other religious congregations.
