Foundations Influencing Policy: Engaging the Board & Building Buy-In
Tuesday, June 30, 2-3PM Eastern, 11AM-12PM Pacific

Foundations’ engagement in public policy has contributed to many advances in society. Yet, in this current moment, philanthropy is needed more than ever to advocate for policy changes that will benefit the communities and people they seek to serve, address systemic racial disparities, and advance equity. This webinar will feature findings from CEP’s recent report, Policy Influence: What Foundations Are Doing and Why, and will draw on BoardSource’s Stand for Your Mission campaign, an effort calling on board members to be advocates for their missions.

This interactive discussion will explore the #1 challenge that foundation leaders face in their policy efforts: building board support.

In this webinar, participants will gain a greater understanding of advocacy as a strategic tool to advance change and achieve a funder’s goals, and gain insight and practical tools for effectively engaging the board and, ultimately, developing greater board support for engaging in the policy realm.
