Foundations on the Hill 2019
March 11-13, 2019
Liaison Capitol Hill DC
Foundations on the Hill (FOTH) is a two-day event that brings together hundreds of foundation leaders from across the country to meet with Congress to discuss issues of critical importance to philanthropy. FOTH is the one time each year when philanthropy speaks with a strong, collective voice on Capitol Hill.
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 in partnership with Alliance for Charitable Reform, 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 Alliance for Charitable Reform's Leadership Breakfast will be held as part of Foundations on the Hill.
Foundation trustees and staff participating in Foundations on the Hill will work with your regional or national philanthropy serving organization to schedule meetings on Capitol Hill. We welcome seasoned FOTH participants and newcomers alike. You’ll receive all the training and support you’ll need through the Delegation Captain for your state or region, who can also answer any questions you may have about your delegation’s participation in FOTH. All Delegation Captains represent Forum members.
Foundations on the Hill is for members of United Philanthropy Forum and their foundation members. Foundations who are not members of a national or regional philanthropy serving organization within the Forum are also welcome to participate and will be assigned to a delegation from their region by the Forum.
Be sure to join us on March 11-13 for the most important advocacy event for philanthropy on Capitol Hill in 2019: Foundations on the Hill 2019.
Foundations on the Hill is sponsored by U.S. Trust. We are thankful for their support of this event to bring philanthropy's key policy issues front and center on Capitol Hill.
FOTH Registration is $175 per person
PolicyWorks Institute 2019
March 10-11, 2019
Liaison Capitol Hill DC
United Philanthropy Forum’s PolicyWorks Institute is the primary opportunity for regional and national philanthropy-serving organizations (PSOs) to take a “deep dive” together over several days to strengthen their policy and advocacy work.
PolicyWorks Institute is for members of United Philanthropy Forum who work on advocacy and policy issues for their PSO or are interested in building skills and capacity in this arena and for foundations that belong to PSOs that are focused on advocacy and public policy as funders or serve on the board of a PSO policy committee.
Join the policy staff from regional and national PSOs and their foundation members to enhance your organization's capacity to engage more effectively in advocacy, public policy and government relations work. You’ll experience plenary sessions to inspire and inform your policy work, concurrent sessions to help build your skills for engaging in policy, and many opportunities to share and connect with your peers. Be sure to join your PSO policy colleagues in DC this March for #PWI19.
Registration is $195 per person
