Don’t be scared of advocacy. Private and public foundations can play an important role in advocacy by engaging in advocacy themselves, and funding grantees to advocate on their issues.
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 a particular issue?
Participants will walk away with:
- a clear understanding of why advocacy is important for them and their grantees
- the kinds of advocacy activities foundations (both public and private) can safely engage in
- best practices for grantmaking to give your grantees the most flexibility under the law for their advocacy efforts.
Resources will be given to address specific legal questions.
This virtual meeting will be hosted on Zoom. Login information will be shared with registrants before the event.
