In an era of hashtag philanthropy, we are reminded that our work must reflect the society in which we want to live. The pace of change is as varied as the neighborhoods in which we live, but it starts with a spark – an idea, an action, a connection – when our mission and values intersect with our communities. Throughout history, these sparks have fueled collaboration, leadership and inclusion as grantmakers work toward informed and equitable change in a field that, by definition, practices love of humanity. As the largest gathering of grantmakers in our state, the annual FPN Summit offers a unique opportunity for sponsors to reach a diverse audience from varying organizations while helping to build philanthropy to build a better Florida.

Registration is now open for Foundations on the Hill, the one time each year when Philanthropy joins together and speaks with one voice to our elected representatives in Washington, D.C. Florida is the third most populous state in the union, representing both a microcosm and macrocosm of many issues facing friends and neighbors across the nation. From immigration to jobs to housing to so many more important issues affecting the future of our communities and our sector, we need your voice to help make ours heard throughout the halls of congress.
This year, our Florida Delegation will focus on emphasizing to our representatives two important issues many of us work with every day: Census and Immigration. On behalf of the philanthropic sector, we will also be working to share with our elected officials the importance of the Charitable Tax Deduction and preservation of the Johnson Amendment. If you have questions, resources, or would like more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll let you know how to get involved!
We all talk about how we want to be more collaborative with nonprofits, funders, sector leaders and community members, but finding the time and the motivation to work together, and to do it well, can be a struggle. One organization, however, is not only working collectively with key stakeholders, they are seeing results in their work because of this approach.
CareerEdge Funders Collaborative offers a leading edge approach to workforce development by working with funders, industry partners and individual in the community by leveraging community assets and forming high-performing workforce partnerships. Mireya Eavey will talk about how this organization started and speak to the results they have seen using a more collaborative approach to helping people in the community.

Florida is a cultural crossroad, serving as both a microcosm and macrocosm of issues that play out in the national landscape and affect our nearly 21 million residents in small towns, metropolitan communities, rural villages and coastal cities. While there is no one-size-fits-all approach to philanthropy, our grantmakers share the ingenuity and drive to help improve quality of life for all Floridians.
Connect with your grantmaking colleagues and experts from around the country at the 2018 FPN Statewide Summit on Philanthropy. Join us in discussing motivations and strategies that affirm our resolve to serve Florida communities – the why we do what we do and the how we do it – ensuring impactful growth and an energized future for philanthropy.
Lawmakers on Capitol Hill are working to pass tax reform before the holidays — that’s just two weeks from today. Both houses have already passed their own versions of the bill, and now it’s up to a conference committee to refine a version that could be passed by both the House and Senate.
While we don’t yet know what final shape this tax bill will take, what we do know is that this tax overhaul stands to have a profound impact on nonprofits and grantmakers alike.
Join Johnson Center for Philanthropy for a FREE webinar on Thursday, December 14 as we address many of your questions — and how Congress is trying to answer them.

New policies emerging at the federal level regarding the environment and climate change have the potential to have profound effects domestically and globally. President Trump’s proposal to cut back the EPA’s budget by 31% is the largest cut of any U.S. agency. Further, some reports cite that his planned policies could lead to an increase in emissions equivalent to 60% of American homes by 2025. Some environmental leaders assert that the planet can ill afford this direction nor the discounted attitude of science itself. What is the environmental movement doing? Please join us for a one hour funder's teleconference to hear from two of our region’s most informed leaders: Ken Kimmell, President of Union of Concerned Scientists and Bradley Campbell, President of Conservation Law Foundation. They will cover the status of policy changes and strategies of defense as well as the hopeful signs that clean energy and a clean environment is a populist interest.
In 2014, the Monitor Institute released “What’s Next for Community Philanthropy,” a toolkit of flexible materials designed to help boards, staff teams and communities think about our changing environment and how it will affect philanthropy.
