Patrick Moore will present “Non-Profits in Election Season and Thereafter” at the Boston Bar Association on September 25, 2018.
Election season is upon us, a time of opportunity and peril for non-profits. We will survey state and federal law regarding political participation — from a tax and election law perspective — and highlight a few quirks that are particularly relevant in Massachusetts. In addition, the law in this area is changing with the Supreme Court playing a leading role, and there are a few trends of which nonprofits should be aware. Finally, we will note a trend in other states concerning non-profit lobbying and discuss whether that approach would fit in Massachusetts. This program will be tailored towards practitioners assisting non-profits in navigating these complex issues, as well as towards executives at non-profits considering political participation this election season.
