Mission-Based Advocacy Toolkit

The Mission-Based Advocacy Toolkit was developed to help nonprofit human service organizations better advance their mission and goals through advocacy and civic engagement.

The toolkit provides tangible resources for:

  • Educating staff, board members, and volunteers
  • Organizing and implementing an advocacy agenda
  • Participating meaningfully in democratic decision making by voicing ideas and opinions

The basic principles outlined in the toolkit can be applied to all levels of government: local, county, state, and federal.

The toolkit is organized in two basic sections:

  • Mission-Based Advocacy Primer. Serves as a reference manual and contains basic information about government, nonprofit lobbying, and building organizational capacity for advocacy work
  • Mission-Based Advocacy Tools. Provides a variety of examples, forms, tools, and resources organizations can use
