Nonprofits are allowed to lobby, but the type of nonprofit determines the level of lobbying allowed.  Some nonprofits can engage in political activity, but not all are allowed that flexibility.  We are pleased to provide access to a chart that outlines the types of activities available to various types of exempt organizations.  The chart can be accessed at Lobbying Requirements Comparison Chart | Nonprofit Accounting Basics.
