Join Philanthropy Northwest for the second year of our virtual policy advocacy workshop series. This four-part series is designed for foundation staff and trustees who want to build their knowledge and capacity to fund and implement policy advocacy. Register for all four sessions and receive a significant price discount. Click the Register Now button on the right.

The first three sessions will focus on building your organization’s policy advocacy capacity and strategy. The last session will focus on how you can work with grantees to support the most effective and meaningful types of investments. Each session features thought leaders and peer funders to engage and facilitate discussions on the various topics, and participants learn together in an interactive format.  

At the end of the series, funders will have the knowledge to move forward with the development and implementation of their own strategies to participate and make strategic investments in policy advocacy work.

Session attendees who want more customized information can sign up for ONE FREE HOUR of policy advocacy consulting from Philanthropy Northwest's Executive in Residence, Remy Trupin. Contact Ankita Patel, public policy and advocacy manager, for more information.
