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


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.


  • The range of potential advocacy roles for your foundation
  • How to create a shared vision with your board
  • Determining where your foundation should start on advocacy


Designed for

All interested funders.
