What is a Watch Party?
Economic Opportunity Funders hosts an Annual Budget and Tax Briefing to provide funders and philanthropic advisors with a unique opportunity to learn about and discuss why federal and state budget and tax work matters to national, state and local philanthropy. During this briefing, participants network with colleagues and learn about and discuss pressing policy developments, key battles and opportunities at the federal and state level, and emerging policy, communications and organizing strategies to advance worker justice, social protections and an economy that works for all.
Since 2014, local viewing parties have been organized to expand our reach to funders by live streaming our anchor federal budget and tax outlook plenary session. Typically, watch parties are organized as two-hour programs, where participants come together to view the federal budget and tax outlook presentation (live or as a recording on a later date) and then engage in a discussion with local experts on how the current landscape impacts critical programs and services in their state or area of interest.
