This members-only program is a part of the Policy Core from our PNY Core:

*Advocacy 101: Boundaries and Opportunities is a prerequisite for those who are new to philanthropic policy advocacy. The second and third sessions require a understanding of these fundamentals.

True or false:

  • It’s permissible for your foundation to make grants that are used for public policy or legal advocacy
  • A 501 (h) election allows your foundation to take a stance on a piece of legislation
  • Administrative lobbying is subject to all the same rules as legislative lobbying
  • Private foundations may fund 501(c)(4) organizations

The answers to these and many other questions may surprise you. And, if they do, you may be missing out on a strategy that can advance your foundation's goals. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn what you need to know about the ins-and-outs — and what's licit and what's not — about using or funding advocacy to further your foundation’s work.


Designed for

All interested funders.
