The Aspen Institute Advocacy Planning and Evaluation Program (APEP) helps our clients plan, assess, and refine their policy advocacy efforts. We also offer a range of free advocacy planning and evaluation tools and provide practical advice on techniques and best practices. In particular, we help foundations, individual funders and nonprofit organizations:
- plan for advocacy success by thinking through where they want to go and how to know they are getting there.
- distinguish between outputs and outcomes – the things they do and the results that matter;
- recognize what is working; and
- do more of what works.
