The Essentials of Policy Advocacy for Grantmakers course will help foundation staff use their resources effectively to advance public policies that support the greater good. Rather than focusing on what policies foundations should address, this training will focus on how to engage in policy advocacy to advance your goals. This training is designed for private foundation staff with a basic understanding of policy, but it is also applicable for staff at all experience levels whose work touches policy advocacy. 

Led by Council on Foundations staff and philanthropic leaders, this training will address policy advocacy strategies that support racial equity and effective practices. Participants will gain helpful tools and resources while networking with peers who are developing and implementing their foundation’s advocacy strategy.

  • Wednesday, September 27: 1:00-5:00 p.m. ET
  • Thursday, September 28: 1:00-5:00 p.m. ET

Who should take this training?

  • Private foundation staff with a basic understanding of policy work.
  • Foundation staff of all experience levels that incorporate policy advocacy into their work - such as those in leadership, communications, grants management or strategic planning.

Please note, this course is limited to foundation staff and Board members only.
