At the federal level, the Lobbying Disclosure Act (LDA) imposes registration and reporting obligations on individuals and entities that lobby various federal officials once certain thresholds have been exceeded. This fact sheet provides an overview of the LDA registration thresholds applicable to charities, foundations, 501(c)(4), union and for-profit organizations. The thresholds under the LDA do not limit your organization’s lobbying, but rather impose certain disclosure and reporting obligations. This fact sheet will be useful for nonprofits that influence federal legislation, regulations, nominations, contracts, permits, and other governmental decisions.
