About this grant

The Independent Sector is a leadership network of more than 550 charities, foundations, and corporate giving programs dedicated to advancing the common good by leading, strengthening, and mobilizing the nonprofit and philanthropic community. This general purpose increase will be used to support the eighth annual Public Policy Action Institute, a two-day course held in conjunction with Independent Sector’s annual conference. The institute will gather approximately 150 nonprofit executives and policy advocates to gain insights on current policy issues facing the nonprofit sector and to share expertise and build strategies for effective advocacy efforts.
