About this event
Advocacy is an important tool for funders seeking to address systemic inequalities ingrained in our policies and practices, and it can be the sole focus of an organization or an additional strategy employed to create lasting change. Many families pursue advocacy because of a founder’s interest or legacy, while others have introduced advocacy into their grantmaking portfolio after listening to grantees, studying the philanthropic landscape and deep reflection within the family. This panel will discuss different approaches to supporting advocacy goals and discuss the role that family legacy, responsiveness and evaluation and success play in this work.
