501(c)(3) Organizations prohibited from political activities
November 3, 2022
Are tax-exempt organizations allowed to engage in political activities? All 501(c)(3) organizations are prohibited from direct and indirect participation in any political campaign for or against any candidate for elected public office. This includes contributing to political campaigns or making public statements favoring or opposing a candidate. Violations may result in lost tax-exempt status. Certain voter education activities that are nonpartisan aren’t prohibited. To avoid being in violation, voter education activities must not have evidence of bias for or against one candidate or group of candidates. Find more about 501(c)(3) organizations from the IRS.
