Election season offers tremendous opportunities for private foundations to use their influence and networks to encourage active participation by all eligible voters. While the IRS does restrict private foundations from engaging in some activities, these restrictions only apply to lobbying, partisan activity (campaign intervention), and earmarking funds for voter registration drives. Bolder Advocacy released Quick Guide: Voter Engagement Messaging and Activities for Private Foundationsto provide an overview of the rules that apply to private foundation activities in an election year.
