Advocacy for Nonprofits: Rules of the Road 

Effective advocacy enables nonprofits to contribute to the public debate on important social issues and ensure that communities they support have a voice in the policies that impact their lives.  Unfortunately, many nonprofits are not clear on what the rules are - what they can and cannot do. Join us to learn about the rules of the road so your organization can be more effective in advancing its mission.

The presentation will be a webinar provided by Abby Levine of Bolder Advocacy For those who are interested, the webinar will be followed by an in-person discussion led by Community Foundation staff, Jim Ayres, Vice President of Programs and Strategy, and Michael DeChiara, Senior Program Officer.  

The Community Foundation is pleased to be partnering with Philanthropy MA and the Massachusetts Nonprofit Network to bring you this learning opportunity.
