Women's March Has 501(c)(4) IRS Status as It Campaigns Against Trump

Two affiliated events via the Women’s March’s organization tool are titled, “Long Beach Rally Against Trump Filling RBG Seat,” and “Womens March against Trump agenda.” Others express support for Joe Biden’s presidential campaign, named, “Beep for Biden” Sign holding event,” “Pacific Islanders for Biden Harris,” and “Pismo Beach Rally for Biden/Harris.”

The IRS prohibits participation in “political campaigns” from being a 501(c)4 organization’s “primary activity.” The IRS indicates, “The promotion of social welfare does not include direct or indirect participation or intervention in political campaigns on behalf of or in opposition to any candidate for public office.

[501(c)4] organizations “may engage in political campaigns on behalf of or in opposition to candidates for public office provided that such intervention does not constitute the organization’s primary activity.

The regulations under IRC 501(c)(4) provide that promotion of social welfare does not include participation or intervention in political campaigns.”

“Political campaign activities” are partially defined as “activities that constitute participation or intervention in a political campaign on behalf or in opposition to a candidate include, but are not limited to, publishing or distributing written or printed statements or making oral statements on behalf of or in opposition to such candidate.”
