Foundation Strategies to Inform Federal Policy in the United States

Mar 1, 2013

Commissioned by the Rockefeller Foundation, TCC Group's research examined what motivates foundations to engage in advocacy, the methods they apply, and the results they achieve. Although the study focuses on federal policy, many of the factors and strategies relate directly to foundation policy reform activities at all levels of government.

  • Foundations leverage network connections to create and foster working relationships or collaboration across sectors, enabling them to leverage diverse resources (financial or otherwise) and a broad base of support behind a reform agenda.
  • The potential results of funder collaboratives include building a trusting and effective network of diverse players, sharing and leveraging best practices, and increased coordination and connection
