Come see NCRP out in the field
Funders’ Committee for Civic Participation, NCRP and the Colorado Association of Funders
Civic Engagement Matters Funder Workshop
February 26, 2018
Dan Petegorsky, NCRP’s senior fellow and director of public policy, will lead NCRP as we cohost a three-hour, hands-on, in-person workshop designed exclusively for grantmakers with the Funders’ Committee for Civic Participation and the Colorado Association of Funders.
Regardless of the issue that moves you, funding nonpartisan civic engagement offers a powerful approach to winning change that can help advance your mission. Grantee strategies that integrate year-round voter engagement with community-organizing activities help build a strong base of support that can strengthen their ability to hold decision-makers accountable, impact public policy and build long-term power among the communities they serve.
Through a mix of interactive activities and takeaway resources participants will be able to assess their institution’s readiness to begin funding civic engagement and address any barriers to getting started. By the end, funders will leave with concrete next steps and the resources they need to put them in place.
