There are four constitutional amendments on the November 8th ballot here in Georgia, including one addressing state intervention in public schools found to be “chronically failing” and another proposing to generate revenue for the Safe Harbor for Sexually Exploited Children Fund. If your organization is urging the public to vote yes or no on any constitutional amendment, your activities are considered lobbying activities. Nonprofit §501(c)(3) organizations are permitted to engage in some lobbying activities, just not a substantial amount.
For more information about the amount of lobbying your organization can do, you can access our educational materials on lobbying for nonprofits at https://pbpatl.org/nonprofit-legal-alerts/nonprofits-and-lobbying/. If you think you may need legal advice, please contact Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta.
