Our staff wants our museum to advocate for certain bills coming up in the Oregon House and Senate (like extending the tax credit for the Oregon Cultural Trust). Do they have to do this as individuals, or can we use our museum's letterhead? Can we put this kind of thing in our newsletter? On our website? Are we allowed to do this?
Basically, the answer is yes, but there are certain things that non-profits can and can't do. Things you can't do include endorsing candidates and fundraising for political campaigns.
Read more about it in this Advocacy 101 handout from the Cultural Advocacy Coalition.
