Our 501©(3) nonprofit humane society is having a fundraiser in October, at which various vendors and organizations will pay a sponsorship fee in order to set up a booth. A local political candidate has expressed interest in purchasing a booth at the event, something that’s never happened with us before. I’m guessing that the IRS wouldn’t have any problems with this, as long as we treat the political candidate like anyone else (i.e., we don’t give them any special breaks); can anyone tell me for certain?
(And I understand that nothing on this board is to be constituted as legal advice etc.; I’m looking for a general idea, not a binding judgment).
