Charitable nonprofits shouldn’t become political

Printer-friendly version

I write today as board chair for the Montana Nonprofit Association (MNA), a membership organization representing more than 600 nonprofits across Montana.

A threat to Montana’s charitable nonprofits recently emerged at the federal level. Legislation was introduced to politicize nonprofits through the repeal of the Johnson Amendment. For 60 years this amendment – put in place by Dwight Eisenhower - has successfully protected charitable nonprofits, religious congregations, and foundations from being hounded for political endorsements, financial contributions and more.
