*This session assumes basic knowledge of philanthropic advocacy. If you do not already have this background, please register for and attend Advocacy 101: Legal Boundaries and Opportunities.
Philanthropy can address the root causes of social problems by influencing policymakers and the public to achieve impact, but it requires finding the right role for our organizations to play. Foundations can be committed and informed champions - responding to community needs, calling attention to urgent issues, bringing people together, looking for transformative solutions, partnering with nonprofits, and sharing knowledge to improve public policy. Join us to learn how peer foundations are carving out roles as advocates, informing public officials, and building the relationships necessary to influence change at a systemic level.
