How can philanthropy make the case for funding advocacy to end homelessness? Uncertain whether you can fund grantees that lobby? What’s philanthropy’s role in educating new members of Congress on housing and homelessness issues? What does it look like to support local ballot initiative work?

Funders Together is partnering with Alliance for Justice to answers these questions and more! This session covers:

  • Reasons for philanthropy to support advocacy and policy work;
  • Definitions of lobbying, and activities that are exceptions to the definitions of lobbying, including those which are permissible for private foundations;
  • Rules for private and public foundation grants to nonprofits that lobby, including general support, specific project, and multi-year grants;
  • How funders can educate and inform incoming Congressional leader on issues that affect housing and homelessness policy; and
  • Supporting local efforts, such as ballot initiatives and narrative change campaigns.

Please note: This webinar is only open to members of Funders Together, private funders, United Ways, and philanthropy-serving organizations.
