“If we become a 501c3 organization, will that hinder our participation in lobbying against legislation that harms homeschooling?”
-Steve in KY
Lobbying for legislation by 501c3 organizations is allowed but it cannot be “substantial.”
The IRS defines “substantial” as more than 20% of your total expenditures.
Lobbying on behalf of a candidate for office is prohibited for 501c3 organizations.
