Join us to amplify the voice of the not-for-profit sector
Want to be a part of public policy discussions and recommendations to support not-for-profits in BC?
By becoming a Vantage Point organizational member your board, staff, and volunteers can participate in advocacy work for the sector. This is your opportunity to be heard and strengthen the voice of BC's not-for-profits.
Sector Advocacy & Collaboration
Add your leadership voice: We advocate with and for the sector. Your organization will have regular opportunities to give input on issues that impact the not-for-profit sector. By amplifying your message with provincial and municipal decision-makers, we can work towards representational sector policies.
Advance public policy for the sector: You now have the opportunity, as a Vantage Point member, to be an active part of sector advocacy and join our brand new, online forum-style working groups. This is a great way to shape the public policy issues most relevant to BC not-for-profits and closest to your interests, while gaining key insights to how others in the not-for-profit sector feel about those same topics.
Grow your network: Access a peer network to support your organization's mission. Receive access to member convening events such as Coworking Days - peer-learning opportunities to collaborate on common projects and challenges together (such as grant applications, operational plans, and more).
Stay Informed: Hear about the latest issues, trends, and news on public policy, government decisions, opportunities, and more through our platform. Receive the latest sector data and research we gather. Access tools and resources to conduct your own public policy advocacy.
