National Council of Nonprofits Launches Coalition Campaign to Oppose Repeal of Johnson Amendment
The Johnson Amendment, which established the principle of nonpartisanship for charitable nonprofits, may soon face repeal. the National Council of Nonprofits launched a campaign to get nonprofits to sign a Community Letter in Support of Nonpartisanship to be sent to senators and Congressional representatives.
The statement from NCN reads, “Charitable nonprofits, private foundations, religious groups, and their vast numbers of supporters can send a clear signal to Congress and the Administration that partisan politics has no place in the 501(c)(3) community. […] Join others from across the country to show that we intend to resist any and all efforts to weaken or repeal this longstanding protection in federal tax law that keeps 501(c)(3) organizations away from endorsing, opposing, or contributing to political candidates.”
