Bolder Advocacy promotes active engagement in the policy making process by giving nonprofits and foundations the confidence to boldly advocate and by protecting their right to do so.

The Bolder Advocacy program website is a place where users can search our robust collection of how-to’s, fact sheets, and reports that help nonprofits stay up to date on advocacy. The site provides examples of how nonprofits have used advocacy to advance their causes, and promotes tools that help nonprofits measure and develop their ability to advocate and evaluate accomplishments.
Bolder Advocacy advances and protects the role of nonprofits and foundations in influencing public policy.
We use our expertise to ensure that the legal and political environment in which organizations operate is fair, balanced, and open to hearing them. By tracking and responding to legislation that affects nonprofit advocacy, fighting for the rights of nonprofits and foundations to conduct advocacy, and responding to potential threats to nonprofit advocacy, we lay the groundwork for more nonprofit organizations to advocate effectively on behalf of their communities.
We also regularly speak out for the sector to demonstrate the importance of advocacy. Our goal is to build a steady drumbeat of support for advocacy and encourage a dialogue within the nonprofit community and beyond about why it is so critical to influence public policy as an appropriate and vital activity tool to meet their goals.
