Event Description:

UNDERSTANDING THE JOHNSON AMENDMENT—THE CORNERSTONE OF PUBLIC TRUST IN THE CHARITABLE COMMUNITY

Presented by the Heyman Program in Philanthropy and Fundraising

Thursday, November 2, 6:30 – 7:45 p.m.

More than 4,900 nonprofit organizations have signed on to protest the repeal of the Johnson Amendment, a provision of the US tax code prohibits all 501.c.3 nonprofit organizations from endorsing political candidates.  In May 2017, President Donald J. Trump signed an executive order “to defend the freedom of religion and speech” for the purpose of easing the Johnson Amendment.  The National Council of Nonprofits and the Independent Sector oppose legislation to repeal the Johnson Amendment on the grounds that it protects the integrity and independence of charitable nonprofits and foundations, allowing them to carry out their missions free of partisan divisions

Join Aimee Simpierre, Editor-at-Large for New York Nonprofit Media, for a discussion about the Johnson Amendment and the national movement to maintain the amendment, which is considered essential to avoid partisanship in the nonprofit sector and permit organizations to continue to serve all in need.
