Winrock is a non-political, nonpartisan organization.  Winrock does not make contributions or expenditures in connection with any election to any political office, or in connection with a primary election or political convention or caucus held to select candidates for any political office.

As a condition of its exemption from paying U.S. federal taxes, Winrock is prohibited from participating in any political activity related to the election of candidates for any public office. This restriction means that Winrock, and its employees, directors, and volunteers who could be perceived as acting on behalf of the organization, are barred from activities that could be reasonably inferred to support, oppose, or express any opinion about the merits of candidates for office at the international, national, state/provincial, or local levels. Examples of such prohibited activities include, but are not limited to:

Each employee has the right to voluntarily participate in the political process, including making personal political contributions and candidate electioneering. However, you must always make it clear that your personal views and actions are not those of Winrock, and never use Winrock funds, resources or facilities for any political purpose.  Employee’s political activities must be conducted on the employee’s own time and only off Winrock premises.

Employees must obtain the prior approval of the Chief Risk and Compliance Officer before seeking to be elected to public office or accepting an appointment to public office.
