Add to Calendar

Presented by the Fairfield County Funder Network

For representatives of private independent and family foundations, corporate foundations and giving programs, community foundations and other public foundations and United Ways


Join us for a discussion with three funders who engage in advocacy to advance their missions. Learn how they got started, how they got buy-in from their boards and other stakeholders, what advocacy strategies they employ, and what impact they’ve seen as a result of their advocacy efforts.

We’ll focus on smaller staffed organizations and also provide a short overview of advocacy for those who did not attend CCP’s December 2017 program “Yes, You Can Advocate!”.

We encourage all CCP members to attend this program, enjoy the beauty of Grace Farms, and continue to network with your peers over lunch in their café. (Light lunch options at reasonable prices.) It’s worth the trip!
