Advocacy: Driving Mission and Growing Dollars


November 1, 2017
9:30 am - 12:30 pm
In today's political climate, nonprofits and their leaders can use advocacy to make the case for positive systemic change that advances mission and meets the increasing needs of clients and stakeholders. 
Learn about how your organization can use advocacy methods to educate influencers, inform the public and policy-makers, and motivate donors to take action. Through lively discussion and real-life case studies, you will learn several key aspects of advocacy and advocacy fundraising which include: 
  • Advocacy Basics - what are the IRS regulations governing nonprofit advocacy; how to research and use the tools you will need; how to plan, budget, and implement an advocacy program that your organization can manage and afford; the difference between advocacy, lobbying and education.
  •  Small Steps Matter & All Politics is Local - advocacy is not just for the big national nonprofits; your community-based nonprofit can weigh in on the issues, too.
  • Government & Foundation Funding - how advocacy can help and hurt foundation and government grants, as well as government contracts.
  • Inspiring Donors - advocacy can inspire current and potential individual donors, especially when you take advantage of the impact that current events can have on your mission, clients and stakeholders; a look at "Rage Fundraising".
  • Using All Your Resources - your wealth of relationships can advance your advocacy work, and that includes those of your board.
