Posted in Uncategorized at 2:45 PM by minoritybrief

In Los Angeles, each foundation dollar spent on advocacy generated $91 in tangible benefits, according to a new report by the National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy. The report examined the organizing, advocacy, and civic engagement of 15 organizations in Los Angeles County between 2004 to 2008. The research is part of NCRP’s Grantmaking for Community Impact Project, which is designed to demonstrate the return on investment for nonprofit advocacy grant funding. Previous reports have examined the positive return on investments for policy work by nonprofits in Minnesota, New Mexico, and North Carolina.
