Special Collection: Multi-party Advocacy

Special Projects

February 15, 2017

For many foundations, collaboration is key to advocating for policy and practice change. But these kinds of partnerships can be challenging to execute well. “Sticking points”, like conflicts over decision-making power or competition for resources, can derail advocacy-focused efforts and make even the most earnest collaborator wary.

Given the current conversation around philanthropy’s role in funding advocacy and social change movements, working through these “sticking points” may prove to be more important than ever.

This collection brings together 40+ reports and reflection pieces about multi-party advocacy efforts; providing valuable perspective on both the sticking points and how we might move through them. The collection is a complement to resources on the same topic from our sister site, GrantCraft.

The project is a partnership between Foundation Center and the Atlas Learning Project, a project of the Center for Evaluation Innovation, with support from the Atlantic Philanthropies.
