Advocate for My Mission

Don’t be fooled! Nonprofits can engage in advocacy and lobbying for public policy without jeopardizing your tax-exempt status. Advocacy is an important way to advance your cause through activities like legislative monitoring, position papers, policy research, grassroots organizing, public education, organizing networks and coalitions, and lobbying.

We’ve organized the resources we offer to help you advocate for your mission based on wherever you fall in your nonprofit lifecycle. For a summary of our resources, download our Annotated Ed Packet and Board Room Quick Tips overviews.
