The Funders' Committee for Civic Participation (FCCP), Money in Politics Working Group, in partnership with the Environmental Grantmakers Assocation (EGA) and the Health and Environmental Funders Network (HEFN), has released Environmental Success Through Democracy Reform: A Grantmakers' Win-Win Toolkit. This resource provides environmental funders with research, ideas and practical tools on how to expand and strengthen their grant making by integrating a money in politics lens into the work.
This toolkit was created in direct response to requests from the environmental funding community over the last few years and includes resources such as internal strategic board memos, requests for proposals (RFPs), examples from the field and funder blogs.
This resource tool is another way to support environmental grantmakers who are leading the way by connecting the dots between policy change and the role of money in politics.
Note that there is a longer version of this Win-Win Toolkit, which includes additional funder materials. If you are a funder who would like the full version, please contact Andrea Levinson.
