FPN members and more than 300 representatives of philanthropy from around the country went to Washington, D.C., to speak with our elected officials about the policies that matter most to philanthropy.
FOTH is an annual two-day opportunity for grantmakers to meet with their federal lawmakers face-to-face in Washington, D.C. Participants advocate for the philanthropic sector and educate lawmakers, both those new to office and seasoned veterans, about the importance of philanthropy in their districts and states.
While the philanthropic sector builds relationships with Congress year-round, FOTH is the one time each year that philanthropy comes together to speak with one voice to our elected leaders about the unique and vital role that charitable giving plays in America.
Members and colleagues gathered on FPN's first evening in D.C. for Leadership, Collaboration, Learning: Two Decades of FPN, a celebration of FPN’s 20th anniversary. FPN will host this networking reception from 6 to 7 p.m. on March 10th at The Florida House on Capitol Hill. Mix, mingle, and make connections with your peers, as well as members of the Florida Congressional Delegation and their staff. Wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served. Please contact Geula Ferguson to RSVP.
This event has passed.
FPN would like to thank those organizations that joined Bob and Geula in participating in 2020 FOTH!
