Add Your Voice: Foundations on the Hill
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!
The cost is $175 per person to attend and includes an opening reception on March 12, breakfast on the March 13 & 14, and grab and go bags on March 13.
Foundations on the Hill
Foundations on the Hill (FOTH) brings together foundation leaders from across the country for meetings with Congress about key issues of importance to foundations and philanthropy. FOTH is presented by United Philanthropy Forum, in partnership with the Alliance for Charitable Reform and Council on Foundations. Foundation trustees and staff work with their regional or national philanthropy-serving organization to schedule meetings on Capitol Hill to personally discuss their work with members of Congress.
Foundations on the Hill is the one time each year when philanthropy speaks with a strong, collective voice on Capitol Hill. Our goals are to inform and educate Congress about philanthropy; create visibility for philanthropy on Capitol Hill; advocate on issues affecting foundations and communities; and encourage Congress to view foundations as a resource on key public policy issues. With the charitable sector under threat in many ways in Washington today, it's more important than ever for philanthropy to show up as a united force for good in Washington.
Who Should Attend
FOTH is intended for anyone serving as a staff or board member for any type of foundation or other philanthropic organization, including but not limited to community foundations, family foundations, private independent foundations and corporate foundations and giving programs. We welcome seasoned foundation representatives and newcomers alike. Training and support will be provide through your Delegation Captain representing your regional association or national philanthropy membership organization.
If you don’t know who the FOTH contacts are for your state, please see our state directory.
FOTH Registration is $175 per person (includes Monday’s opening reception, breakfast on Tuesday and Wednesday, and grab and go bags on Tuesday)
