The Consortium’s long term goal is to change the way Texas philanthropy thinks about and engages in public policy and advocacy. Public policy and advocacy work does not have to be scary and there is a place for every type of foundation at the policy table.

The Consortium seeks to ensure that grantmakers understand what foundations can and cannot do in the public policy arena. We have provided a list of resources designed with both public and private foundations in mind. The more knowledgeable foundations are about what is allowable - and possible! - the more effective we will be as a field.
