Frontera Strategy

Frontera Strategy opens the political process to innovative thinkers interested in expanding access to democracy and improving the world for future generations. They work with organizations that are passionate about their work and understand that successful advocacy requires strategy, planning, and the right people.

Frontera has led and assisted efforts to pass legislation and secure appropriations at state capitols across the country for more than two decades. They know the issues and politics important to nonprofits and philanthropy—and how to win. Frontera also supports advocacy efforts by providing qualitative and quantitative research services, including literature reviews, needs assessments, and environmental scans, program and policy evaluation, statistical analyses, and survey research for associations, foundations, and nonprofit service organizations active in state capitols.
