Nonprofits can support Florida's Right to Clean Water 

RTCW Ambassadors

Nonprofits, especially those exempt under IRS Code 501(c)(3), are sometimes hesitant to support "legislative activities" that can include petitioning for a citizen initiative to amend the Florida Constitution.  HERE'S IMPORTANT GUIDANCE YOU SHOULD KNOW.

There are many resources available online, to include information published by such organizations as Bolder Advocacy (with whom we have no affiliation), that spell out the spectrum of options nonprofits have.

Reach out to any of the nonprofits that are current supporters of the Florida Right to Clean Water effort to check out how they're managing to support, such as the Florida League of Women Voters and various waterkeepers throughout the state.

At a minimum, you're able to educate your members and followers on the issue in general.  We're happy to support this greater awareness in whatever way you wish.

Learn about the contours of relevant law to fully protect your exempt status while taking advantage of your full capabilities to support the Florida Right to Clean Water citizens' initiative.
