Beyond the Ballot: How Your Organization Can Win This November
Event Category 

INA members FREE; $10 not-yet-members

The best time to educate a lawmaker is when they are a candidate. You are likely thinking that's illegal. Nonprofits can’t engage in election activities, and you are right. There are election activities that nonprofits must steer clear of, but there are many activities that nonprofits can—and should—engage in during election season. Nonprofits that engage and leverage this big opportunity will emerge in November stronger and better able to meet their missions. Elections provide nonprofit organizations the opportunity to demonstrate to future lawmakers — and to voters, donors, and others — that their issue is an election issue, one that people care about and will vote on.

Learning Objectives:

  • The common myths holding nonprofits back from engaging in election activities
  • How engaging in elections can strengthen your organization
  • Specific activities your organization can engage in this fall - and ones you want to stay away from
  • Next Steps to Take
