Thank you for your interest in the Midwest Advocacy Scan!

At this time, we are only accepting responses from nonprofits. However, we will be releasing another survey for foundations next year. Scroll down to receive the infographic at the scan completion or learn more about the network of policy services we are beta testing.


Coming in Fall 2018

Who speaks up for your community?                                                       

Decisions are made every day in the state capitol and D.C. that could have a major impact in your community. But nonprofits often lack the time or resources to speak up. Boards and staff may also mistakenly think advocacy is out of bounds for nonprofits.

Imagine knowing exactly when to contact policymakers to share how policies and funding proposals will impact local communities. What if you could reach your congressperson at the touch of a button with language that will resonate with them?

Dugan Bassett Consulting is exploring development of a new network of nonprofits to track legislation and regulations, notify you when they will impact your people, and make it incredibly easy to educate policymakers.

Members will be able to choose from two or three levels of service or add from a menu of à la carte services. Membership benefits will be tiered and may include:

·       Weekly or daily, tailored legislative tracking reports

·       Regular, tailored regulatory reports

·       Recommendations for action

·       Advocacy assessments

·       Staff and board training

·       Templates for media and policymaker outreach

·       Grassroots engagement software

·       Coalition support

·       Assistance with planning and executing lobby days or major advocacy  


·       And much more.

Sharing back office costs for experienced staff cuts the overhead for individual nonprofits.
