    I am fully aware of nonprofit and not-for-profit organizations and how they are used as a tax exempt loophole.
    Also the ARRL cannot claim to be a nonprofit organization because they do attempt to influence State, local and Federal legislation.

    I know some folks are not happy about the ARRL paying for 'under 18' application fees for members, and think that money should be spent elsewhere.

    What some are not considering is that donors may have earmarked the funds for that specific purpose. Likely the board acted based on that.

    Unless you know something the rest of us don't, I am going to have to say "ah, we don't know that."

    Ahh, ok.

    Yes, and no.

    Strictly the 501c3 shouldn't do any "influencing". Practically though, the IRS applies both a subjective and objective test. The majority of the organization activities must not be "influencing".

    Many other 501c3 orgs do a little bit, ARRL can too.

    A limited amount of lobbying is allowed.

    See: https://forums.qrz.com/index.php?th...-lobby-congress-for-arrl.689555/#post-5337638

    Lobbying doesn't include working with administrative bodies (such as the FCC) which is mostly what ARRL gets involved with.

    See 2nd paragraph at : https://www.irs.gov/charities-non-profits/lobbying

    Have you actually been "threatened and extorted"?
