Demystifying Advocacy: What is it and how do I fit it into my busy schedule?
The Association of Fundraising Professionals Greater Madison Chapter is offering “Demystifying Advocacy: What is it and how do I fit it into my busy schedule?”:
“Advocacy? Sure, I’d love to see the universal charitable deduction or the IRA charitable rollover provision enhanced and strengthened, and I don’t want nonprofit postage rates to climb too high? But I’m also busy as a fundraiser and what do I know about advocacy?” Sound familiar? If you want to make sure that government helps—not hinders—fundraising and philanthropy, but aren’t sure what you can do about it, join Michael Nilsen, Vice President, Public Policy at AFP Global, in this fast-paced, presentation about how you can use your skills as a fundraiser to cultivate your elected officials to advance your organization’s mission—without taking time away from your daily responsibilities.
Join the conversation with Michael in this online meeting. You will get the chance to ask questions and hear how other fundraisers are getting involved in advocacy.”
