Released in September 2012, the third edition of The Connection: Strategies for Creating and Operating 501(c)(3)s, 501(c)(4)s, and Political Organizations explains the different roles and functions of charities, social welfare organizations, PACs and other types of nonprofits. We clarify the federal rules and illuminate the ways these organizations can work together to accomplish common goals.
The third edition reflects the fundamental changes that have occurred in the wake of the Supreme Court’s 2010 decision inCitizens United v. Federal Election Commission, allowing corporations and labor unions to make independent expenditures, and the decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals in Speech/Nowv.Federal Election Commission permitting a new generation of independent expenditure PACs.
