Leave No Power on the Table: Connecting Civic Engagement to Mission

Location: Lone Star 1 (2nd Floor, Convention)

Elections have a direct impact on fundamental issues related to quality of life and nonprofits’ ability to pursue our charitable missions. But, according to new research commissioned by Independent Sector, 56% of nonprofits report that policy engagement does not apply to their mission and only 13% engage in nonpartisan voter engagement services.

The study found that mission alignment is the single most powerful indicator of whether a nonprofit will step forward and advocate. All of our findings point toward opportunities for even greater impact by nonprofits, particularly in areas such as advocacy and policy reform to address systemic issues and advance public good.

During this skills-building workshop, participants will learn how their organization can leverage civic engagement as a tool to ensure policymakers are accountable to nonprofits and the communities we serve, during and after the 2024 election. Together, we will explore how nonpartisan voter engagement and advocacy are integral to every nonprofit mission.
