ELCA VOTES! And Your Congregation's Tax Exemption Status

ELCAvotes is an initiative to encourage faithful and non-partisan voter participation by providing faith-based resources around voting, including providing a framework to help all Lutherans to understand and speak out about the intersection of voting and elections and racial, gender and economic justice. In an election year, these resources can be particularly helpful. You can find those resources and more at ELCAVotes! While ELCAVotes! resources follow non-profit, religious guidelines and laws, it never hurts to to brush up on those yourself. Church Mutual has a webinar on the do's and don't's of being a public church and protecting your congregation's non-profit status. You can watch it on their website: Church Mutual Webinar on religious non-profits and the political process.
