Is advocacy the same as fundraising?

Can you help my organization/program raise funds?


There is a difference between advocacy and fundraising. Advocacy takes a broader view and has a deeper effect than fundraising, which is focused on securing one-time allocations of money, typically for one organization or program, and does not impact policy decisions.

When advocating for policies that support the arts, we are promoting an expectation that our public infrastructure should include sustainable funding for the arts – rather than focusing on one-time fundraising campaigns.
