501(c)(4) Resources in Advocacy Ecosystems
501(c)(4) organizations contribute a unique role and skillset to advocacy efforts, including the ability to be engaged in political or electoral processes beyond the reach of 501(c)(3) organizations. 501(c)(4) resources may be located close to the heart of decisionmaking or distributed throughout an advocacy ecosystem. Ownership and control of 501(c)(4) resources may be centered with communities affected by the issue or policy at hand or may be perceived to be controlled by other interests. Case examples of 501(c)(4) organizations and these characteristics in an advocacy ecosystem will be explored and discussed as well as related evaluation considerations.
What’s innovative? We’re making progress in understanding and evaluating the complimentary resources employed by social change organizations.
