Nonprofit Day on the Hilll

Tennessee Nonprofit Network will host Nonprofit Day on the Hill at the Tennessee State Capitol on February 28th to create visibility for Tennessee nonprofits and help our nonprofit partners connect with policymakers.

This event provides an opportunity to learn from and educate state government officials. An additional optional Advocacy Summit will be held the day before on February 27th to empower you and give you all the tools you need to make your day on the Hill spectacular!

Nonprofit Day on the Hill at the Capitol is a one-day event that will serve as a source of inspiration and a vital link between and among the state’s nonprofit sector and the leaders within the TN General Assembly. Nonprofit Day on the Hill is an opportunity for nonprofit staff and board members to meet with elected officials and advocate for the nonprofit sector while also educating electors about the work that your own organization provides.
The goals of the Nonprofit Day on the Hill are to:
Create visibility for the nonprofit sector and help nonprofits connect with policymakers.
Advocate on the importance of nonprofits and the issues important to nonprofit sector partners.
Encourage the TN General Assembly to view the state’s nonprofit sector as a vital and key resource on public policy issues.
Build your organization’s relationship with lawmakers and their staff.

How We Do It

Tennessee Nonprofit Network will set the overall schedule of the Nonprofit Day on the Hill activities with support from our Public Policy Action Network. We will begin with a light breakfast at the Capitol at 8:00am and discussion around general issues affecting the nonprofit sector to be highlighted through interaction with legislators. Time will also be allocated for one-on-one meetings with lawmakers throughout the day to highlight the work and issues important to your organization. (Lunch will be provided.)
