Lawyers Alliance, NPCC File Suit Objecting to New State Donor Disclosure Law

On Monday March 6, 2017 Lawyers Alliance for New York and the Nonprofit Coordinating Committee (NPCC) filed a lawsuit against the New York State Attorney General’s office challenging a law that unnecessarily discourages contributions to nonprofit organizations. The Governor wants to require charitable nonprofits to disclose their donors just because they work with certain advocacy groups – even when that work has nothing to do with lobbying. Nonprofits must be transparent and accountable, but this law is a solution in search of a problem. It’s too broad, won’t encourage the transparency it seeks, and is bad for the nonprofit sector.
