Michigan Nonprofit Association Opposes Efforts to Politicize Charitable Nonprofits and Foundations

21 March 2017
Michigan Nonprofit Association joins with other leaders of our charitable nonprofit sector in opposing efforts through legislation or Executive Order to eliminate or weaken the Johnson Amendment that prohibits 501(c)(3) charitable organizations from endorsing, opposing or contributing to political candidates and engaging in partisan campaign activities. 501(c)(3) organizations should remain above the political fray, advocating and informing but not engaging in political activity.

MNA's full position statement is available here.
