Voter Engagement Toolkit for Private Foundations

Foundations and nonprofits are well positioned to increase voter and civic participation within the communities they serve. They’re trusted messengers, deeply rooted in local communities, and invested for the long term. Increasing participation fits well into the social missions and goals of philanthropic organizations. The case studies in this toolkit range from communications initiatives, trainings, or incorporating voter engagement as part of the foundation’s support for civic participation, advocacy, community engagement, and active citizenship.
