Participation in the public policy and advocacy process is an essential component of the philanthropic sector's work toward promoting a strong sector and advocating for vibrant, equitable communities. PSOs are leading the way in this work, positioning the broader sector using its voice and influence to impact policy change.

United Philanthropy Forum is proud to help enhance that work by providing a place and platform for PSOs to work and advocate together for the common good. As PSOs continue to establish public policy as a key area of work, public policy and advocacy agendas are crucial to helping guide that work.

To that end, the Forum public policy team has compiled advocacy agendas from across our vast network to help serve as examples and as a resource for PSOs and the broader sector. These examples are intended to inform members' public policy and advocacy work, and assist PSOs seeking to coordinate with peers around policy issues, advocacy, and mobilization.

This page will be updated on an ongoing basis. To add your PSO’s public policy or advocacy agenda to this resource webpage, please contact Nate Borek, Forum Senior Public Policy Associate.
