As many of you know, LANO is a proud member of the National Council of Nonprofits(NCN). We are therefore joining the National Council of Nonprofits, their nationwide network, and nonprofits and foundations from across the country, in signing onto a special Community Letter in Support of Nonpartisanship. This letter is in response to a possible repeal of the Johnson Amendment, a 1954 tax provision that directly affects the actions of 501(c)(3) organizations. The proposed legislation would alter this longstanding federal law that protects charitable nonprofits and foundations – and the donating public – by allowing this type of political activity.

 

The sign-on letter campaign that NCN is about to launch in Nonprofit Advocacy Matters is designed to generate as many organizational signers as possible from all 50 states. They welcome organizational names from charitable nonprofits, foundations, and for-profits that support their community and oppose changes to the Johnson Amendment. All of you can help by sending out a special Action Alert to your email list, include the issue in your newsletter, and any other way you have to communicate with organizations in your state. Their ask is that you send folks to the website with the sign-on letter: www.GiveVoice.org. This letter will be delivered to their U.S. Senators and Representatives to show them that charitable nonprofits, foundations, and their many supporters are united in opposition to efforts to politicize their community.

 

Deadline to sign is March 20!!
