The National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy has released the
second in a series of reports documenting the impacts of advocacy,
community organizing and civic engagement. The report features the work
of 13 organizations in North Carolina and what they have accomplished
since 2003. The findings are very impressive – for those wins that could
be quantified, NCRP documented more than $1.8 billion in benefits to
workers, youth, the uninsured, senior citizens, rural residents,
individuals with HIV/AIDS, and many other under-represented
constituencies. The groups also achieved many equally significant
non-monetary impacts benefiting farmworkers, LGBT residents, and others.
NCRP is using the series of reports to engage institutional grantmakers
in dialogue about the effectiveness of advocacy and organizing with the
goal of increasing philanthropic support for these strategies.
Previously NCRP released a similar report about advocacy and organizing
in New Mexico.
