What We Do

The Funders Policy Institute is a hands-on experiential learning program focused on capacity building and network facilitation. Participants will learn directly from policymakers and advocates while connecting with other funders who are committed to effective, policy-based grantmaking.

Who We Train

The Funders Policy Institute trains philanthropic leaders and individual philanthropists from all sectors and geographies, from national funders with a focus on California to regional family foundations. Participants’ backgrounds range from those with a new interest in systems change through policy advocacy to experienced grantmakers interested in refining their long term strategy.

How We Work

Over the course of a three-day training, participants will learn:

  • Best-practices to support policy advocacy
    Investment strategies that bolster policy change
  • Lobbying and advocacy rules for foundations and nonprofits
  • Partnership approaches with community advocates

This work is powered by you.

The feminist future we are building together in California is going to be built by all of us sharing our time, our money, and our skills.  Please consider contributing today.

Together We Are Unstoppable.
