The publication, one of many AFJ resources devoted to the legal framework of nonprofit advocacy, is considered indispensable to 501(c)(3) organizations concerned with what they can and cannot do under tax and election law during electoral campaigns.
In this election year, with many nonprofits seeking ways to become involved in the political process, The Rules of the Game answers questions such as:
The Rules of the Game can be ordered on the Alliance for Justice Website, http://www.afj.org/for-nonprofits-foundations/resources-and-publications/pay-for-publications/the-rules-of-the-game.html, and costs $25 per copy. Bulk rates are available.
This second edition was prepared by Rosemary E. Fei and David A. Levitt of Adler & Colvin, and Laurence E. Gold of Lichtman, Trister & Ross, PLLC.
