Foundations often miss their incredible opportunity to shape public policy due to a fear of engaging in advocacy. Lobbying is a form of advocacy that is only one point on the continuum of ways to use one’s voice. When foundations do not use their voices to speak about policies impacting their organizations and communities they serve, it removes the philanthropic sector from the democratic process.
ABOUT THE SERIES
Philanthropy Northwest invites foundation staff, board members and trustees who want to build their knowledge and capacity to fund and implement policy advocacy to join us for our virtual workshop series. Each session features thought leaders and peer funders to engage and facilitate discussions on policy advocacy topics, and participants learn together in an interactive format. Session attendees may also sign up for ONE FREE HOUR of policy advocacy consulting from Philanthropy Northwest's Executive in Residence, Remy Trupin.
We are a nonprofit too. Donate to Giving Compass to help us guide donors toward practices that advance equity.
