Foundations on the Hill (FOTH) is a two-day event that brings together foundation leaders from across the country to D.C. for meetings with Congress about key issues of importance to foundations and philanthropy. FOTH is presented by the Forum of Regional Associations of Grantmakers. Foundation trustees and staff work with their regional association to schedule meetings on Capitol Hill to personally discuss their work with members of Congress.
With January 2019 marking the start of the 116th Congress with new congressional leadership, #FOTH19 is timed perfectly to help current and new elected officials understand the value of philanthropy to the social and economic fabric of our country, and to stress the importance of philanthropy and government working as equal partners at the table to ensure the continued health of our sector.
Presented by United Philanthropy Forum, Foundations on the Hill aims 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 and partner on key public policy issues.
The registration rate for this event is $125.
