Policy Advocacy Tools

Policy advocacy is a critical and important activity for all nonprofits seeking to achieve lasting and meaningful change. Engaging in advocacy is an opportunity to share your priorities with the public, represent communities, advance policies, and promote funding.

However, CCVO recognizes the limited time and capacity that the nonprofit sector has to dedicate to this work. That is why we’ve put together the tools and resources below to support your organization's policy advocacy initiatives.

If you would like to see resources focused on other advocacy topics, please let us know at policy@calgarycvo.org.
