Advocate

As the voice of philanthropic and nonprofit organizations in Illinois, Forefront provides leadership and advocacy to ensure that policies support the critically important role of our Members and other social impact organizations – as well as the millions of people served by the sector.

Forefront’s public policy and advocacy work engages our Members to create a legislative and regulatory environment in Illinois (and at the federal level) that helps the philanthropic and nonprofit sector attain better results.  We see policy work as a way to achieve our mission of promoting – and protecting – philanthropy and a strong nonprofit sector in the state.
