Election years provide an important opportunity to influence the agendas of our policymakers by educating candidates about issues that affect your mission and community. Advocacy can be a powerful tool for foundations and grantees to advance their missions. Not sure whether or 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? Join Philanthropy Northwest and Alliance for Justice for a workshop about advocacy considerations for funders.
