Cause Collective Advocacy

Part of Cause Collective's mission is to support its members through advocacy.   We do this by helping them understand the importance of advocacy, the difference between lobbying and advocacy, and by letting them know what is happening in the Legislature that is related to nonprofits and the clients they serve. As a membership agency serving over 100 nonprofits, it is important we are able to use our strength in numbers to raise our voice for those in need.
Cause Collective's Advocacy Policy and Procedures.




Thanks to our friends at Coalition for a Stronger Nebraska, for sharing this great information to help nonprofits learn how to advocate and lobby. Check out the links below to learn more and help us educate our members and other nonprofits.
