Advocating for Transformative Change

CMF’s advocacy efforts focus on issues that may have long-term, systemic impact and where philanthropy’s voice can resonate. Our advocacy work is prioritized and guided by our five policy domains and our member-informed Building an Equitable Future Together policy framework.  

  • Education
  • Economic Prosperity
  • Health 
  • Civic Engagement
  • Health of the Sector

Championing Policy Leadership

The CMF Government Relations Public Policy Committee (GRPPC) advances our community of philanthropy’s collective voice in public policy.

Forging Strategic Partnerships

Our advocacy efforts are catalyzed and supported through the leadership of our Government Relations Public Policy Committee and through strategic partnerships at both the state level – like the Governor’s Office of Foundation Liaison— and national level. We are here to champion your policy leadership, supporting you now and in the decades to come. Questions on how to engage in or expand your advocacy efforts?
