Private and public foundations can play an important role in influencing policy by engaging in advocacy and funding their grantees to advocate on their issues. Led by Bolder Advocacy Senior Counsel Tim Mooney, this workshop will provide your foundation with a clear understanding of why including policy advocacy as a deliberate organizational strategy can help you achieve your goals, the kinds of advocacy activities you can safely engage in, and how to build effective relationships with policymakers.
