Am I Lobbying? Understanding Which Activities New York Nonprofits Should Track for Lobbying Reporting Purposes

A New York nonprofit organization that participates in a lobby day, seeks government funds, or urges government actors to help their community may need to track and report lobbying activity. This webinar will explain which activities may count as lobbying for purposes of the Internal Revenue Code limit on lobbying by a 501(c)(3) public charity, as well as the New York State and New York City lobbyist registration laws.

Learning Objective: Participants will be able to identify which of their activities should be tracked and potentially reported on their organization’s IRS 990, as well as to the New York Joint Commission on Public Ethics (JCOPE) and the New York City Clerk’s Lobbying Bureau.

For nonprofit managers and advocates.

Presenter: Laura Abel, Senior Policy Counsel
