EPIP-NY’s Beth Herz on Funding Advocacy in Polarized Political Times

Check out this blog post on Philanthropy New York by EPIP-New York Leadership & Development Co-Chair Beth Herz.

In the post, Beth recaps a recent funders briefing that dealt with the issue of rising political attacks against advocacy organizations and the roles funders could play inĀ  responding. An excerpt from the post:

“Funders can play a key role in helping organizations be resilient. The co-sponsors of this event came together both to learn from cases of political attacks and to discuss how they might coalesce in partnership with targeted organizations. With unprecedented amounts of money now going into political offensives against advocacy organizations, the ongoing partnership and support of funders in the face of attacks will be essential for the health of nonprofits like LAANE and Planned Parenthood.”
