Grantmakers can leverage grant dollars and their personal knowledge of their communities’ needs through advocacy. Many foundations avoid advocacy because trustees and/or staff may not fully understand what is and is not allowed when foundations leverage their knowledge. Advocacy covers a wide range of activities that seek to bring about systemic social change, often seeking to address the root causes, as well as the symptoms, of social and economic problems.
