Webinar - Advocacy: Evaluation and Capacity Building Share:

Thursday, January 25 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am • Organized By Nonprofit Connect
Online Event


The most effective advocacy work happens when groups and coalitions know where they stand and can leverage their organizational strengths to work for social change. Bolder Advocacy, an initiative of Alliance for Justice, is leading the charge of nonprofits and foundations in their embrace of public policy.

This presentation will:

Using ACT, nonprofits and foundations can benchmark their advocacy skills, identify specific gaps and opportunities in their advocacy strategies, identify areas to build, efficiently focus resources for best results, and evaluate their capacity building progress. PowerCheck makes it easy for nonprofits, evaluators, and funders to assess their capacity for engaging in community organizing, planning successfully, and tracking capacity building progress over time. In addition, the webinar introduces AFJ’s easy to use library, Resources for Evaluating Community Organizing.

Participants will complete the ACT!Quick, a short version of the Advocacy Capacity Tool, ahead of the webinar, and will dive deep into results, guided by ACT's creator and advocacy expert Sue Hoechstetter.
