A new report released by the Washington, D.C.-based National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy cites Pennsylvania Partnerships for Children for our advocacy and achievements in health coverage for children, school funding, early childhood education and graduation requirements.
In "Strengthening Democracy, Increasing Opportunities: Impacts of Advocacy, Organizing, and Community Engagement in Pennsylvania," the report describes and monetizes the policy impacts of 13 Pennsylvania organizations – including PPC - between 2005 and 2009. The report shows for every dollar invested in the advocacy, organizing and civic engagement activities of the 13 nonprofits, there was a return of $122 in benefits to local communities.
How gratifying for us to do this work that truly makes a difference to children, families and communities and that also is recognized by a national research and advocacy organization that promotes philanthropy. You can see PPC mentioned on pages 9, 21-24, 27 and 28.
