Mayfield Civic Association does not endorse candidates

The Mayfield Civic Association, a nonprofit organization, does not endorse candidates for political office, interim president and former Mayor Lawrence Davies said.

He said there may have been confusion about the role of the association, which, he said, is a 501(c)(3) organization.

According to IRS regulations, “To be tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, an organization must be organized and operated exclusively for exempt purposes set forth in section 501(c)(3), and none of its earnings may inure to any private shareholder or individual. In addition, it may not be an action organization, i.e., it may not attempt to influence legislation as a substantial part of its activities and it may not participate in any campaign activity for or against political candidates.”
