The Forum's annual PolicyWorks for Philanthropy Institute is a time for regional associations and their volunteer leaders to learn together in skills building sessions, network, and have thought provoking discussions.

By attending the Institute, regional association (RA) staff and volunteer leaders will:

  • Strategize on effective tactics for encouraging funders to support systems change;
  • Learn promising approaches for RA affinity group policy work;
  • Share ideas for individual and collective action on state and federal policy issues; and
  • Discuss philanthropy’s role in strengthening democracy.

The first two registrations at each regional association are free of charge and additional registrants are $300.

Please note that the Forum's Annual Conference will precede the Institute on July 28-30.
