Please join Donors Forum, the Moline Foundation, and the Community Foundation of the Great River Bend for a training session and discussion on connecting advocacy to your mission! This training session will be a follow-up to the meeting we had in October around “Building a Stronger Illinois” and will help you learn more about the nuts and bolts of effective advocacy.

Advocacy has a role in fulfilling the mission of nonprofits and making an impact in our communities. It can be connected to every organization’s mission, no matter the level of experience, no matter the size organization. Participants will leave the training with:

  • skills on how to leverage advocacy for their organization through well planned educational action
  • tools and actionable next steps to make their voices heard by their Illinois elected officials
Please note that the training will be focused on Illinois advocacy and politics (though some of it will be general).

Tuesday, July 22, 2014
1:00 p.m. – Check-In
1:15 - 3:45 p.m. – Briefing and Discussion
Please RSVP by July 17
**Snacks will be served

The Deere-Wiman House
