Principles & Practices

In an effort to support nonprofits in fulfilling their missions, this event will help to focus your work on the following practices:

  • POLICY 1: Nonprofits should help their clients, members, volunteers and donors learn how relevant policies affect them, develop their skills and knowledge in public policy making, and help them take advantage of opportunities to participate in the public policy process.
  • POLICY 8: In situations where an organization’s mission is directly affected by a public policy, nonprofits should lead advocacy efforts regarding the policy, which may involve a variety of advocacy activities including direct lobbying.
