Breakout | Investing in Change: How Funders Can Support Advocacy and Lobbying

Invitations to the keynotes and learning sessions are limited to PEAK’s Organization Members along with PEAK2020 registrants who generously supported us by forgoing registration refunds.


Private and public foundations can play a vital role in advocacy, both by engaging in advocacy themselves and by funding their grantees to advocate on the issues important to them. Not sure how to make the case for funding advocacy? Uncertain whether you can fund grantees that lobby? Wondering whether your public or private foundation can speak out on an issue? This session answers these and other questions. Participants will get a clear understanding of the kinds of advocacy activities you can safely engage in, and best practices for ensuring your grantees have the most flexibility allowable under the law for their advocacy efforts.
