Advocacy Agenda

MCF engages in advocacy and public policy as a means to advance its mission as a vibrant philanthropic community working collectively to advance prosperity and equity.

MCF's Advocacy Agenda highlights our advocacy priorities for the year. These are the set of issues we plan to focus on with a proactive commitment of time and resources. 

In 2024, MCF’s Advocacy Agenda focuses on 1) promoting charitable giving and a strong charitable sector 2) strengthening democratic systems and civic participation, and 3) supporting disaster recovery, community resilience, and climate action.

MCF's Public Policy Compendium is our full compendium of public policy positions adopted by MCF’s board. We have an ongoing commitment to monitor and act on the issues included in the Compendium.

Note: Public policy positions adopted by MCF are the positions of the Council and not of its individual members.
