What's Happening

Communicating Your Cause

Every day, nonprofits build support for their organizations and causes by making their case to donors, funders, and the public. Most nonprofits spend far less time making their case to elected officials who make key decisions affecting how they operate and carry out their missions. This three hour program will help your organization build connections with elected officials in your community, learn how to engage voters in your mission, and advocate by the rules.
