Research and analysis for social impact provide insights for the funders, community organisations and changemakers we work with. Our Insights papers provide overviews of key reports we have produced for our clients and partners.
Voice, influence, action: funding advocacy for impact is drawn from a report commissioned from CSI in 2019 by the J R McKenzie Trust (JRMT). Advocacy can be a highly effective tool to effect change, and JRMT has a long history of funding advocacy, with increasing investment and focus in recent years through, for example, its Peter McKenzie Project. This paper provides an overview of what advocacy involves, why funders might support advocacy, options for doing so and some insight and pointers to consider.
