Pat Moore to Present "How Non-Profits Can Participate in Political Campaigns, Advocacy and Lobbying"

Boston, MA


Hemenway & Barnes counsel Patrick M. Moore will co-present "How Non-Profits Can Participate in Political Campaigns, Advocacy and Lobbying" at the Boston Bar Association on April 12.

About the Program

This presentation will discuss the issues faced by nonprofit organizations seeking to be involved in political issues, campaigns for office, ballot initiatives, and advocacy for particular public policies. The discussion will quickly cover the legal rules governing the operation of 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4) organizations in this area, and then focus extensively on two topics related to issue advocacy and campaign involvement: (1) governance issues facing overlapping 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4) organizations, including board composition, funding and fundraising concerns, and organization expenditures, and (2) the impact of federal and Massachusetts’ campaign finance and lobbying laws on the operation of all nonprofit organizations. In addition to leading the discussion, the panelists will also analyze several “hypotheticals” designed to illustrate and provide solutions for the issues discussed.
