Uncorked Advocates was started after the 2016 election with the idea to help nonprofits "uncork" their ability to be heard by national policymakers to better support their mission and communities. Charitable groups deserve to be heard by policymakers and polling in early 2016 among voters in swing states found overwhelming support for the charitable sector to work with the federal government to produce more effective and efficient solutions to problems. #united4charity


This need for Congress to understand the unique value of nonprofits to the public and private sector has never been greater.  Uncorked Advocates is working hard on behalf of its clients to achieve relief during the COVID-19 crisis. The firm successfully secured millions of dollars in support for its clients in the first CARES Act stimulus package.


With over 20 years spent in advocating for national nonprofits in Washington, DC and working on Capitol Hill, Sally Schaeffer understands how to help clients achieve policy and funding goals.  She is a registered federal lobbyist and has a proven track record of passing bipartisan bills into law and working with various Administrative agencies including the IRS, Justice, HHS, Education, and Labor.
