Investing in Change: How Funders Can Support Advocacy and Lobbying

Organization Members Only

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. In this session, 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.
