Gun Violence Prevention Resources

In September 2022, MCF hosted a conversation about philanthropy's role in reducing gun violence. Presenters explored various strategies including research, education, and policy solutions that seek to reduce gun violence through an evidence informed, public health approach, and make communities safer. Gun violence prevention, working in tandem with justice system reform and violence intervention can be powerful forces toward creating safe and just communities.

Public Policy & Democracy

What Nonprofits Need to Know About Lobbying

This resource is designed to help your nonprofit organization determine if state or local regulations might apply to your existing or proposed advocacy work. The answer is surprisingly often yes, but there are also often many advocacy activities that do not require state lobbyist registration or reporting.
