For nonprofits, coalitions, and groups engaged in advocacy, it’s important to understand your advocacy capacity so that you are ready to take action when opportunities arise. The Advocacy Capacity Tool (ACT!) is designed to help your organization become more effective at advocacy.
By completing this tool, you will have a comprehensive snapshot of your organizational advocacy capacity. You can use this tool to benchmark your skills, identify gaps and opportunities in your strategies, and determine where you need to build capacity to achieve your goals. This tool can also be used as part of an advocacy evaluation plan.
