As the largest and most diverse network in American philanthropy, United Philanthropy Forum (the Forum) holds a unique position in the social sector to help increase philanthropy’s impact in communities across the country.
The Forum recognizes the importance of substantial engagement in the public policy process. Headquartered in Washington, D.C., we are strategically located to lead in public policy and advocacy, promoting a strong philanthropic sector and advocating for vibrant, equitable communities.
The Forum's policy work also strengthens relationships and partnerships between philanthropy and government. By leveraging the power of our broad network, through public policy and advocacy, the Forum:
- Serves as a unified voice for the philanthropic sector;
- Impacts legislation, regulation, and public policy at the state and federal levels via strong advocacy and engagement strategies;
- Provides a platform and support for members’ participation in the public policy/advocacy process;
If you have any questions about the Forum’s public policy work, engagement with elected officials, or sector public policy resources, please contact Matthew L. Evans, the Forum’s Senior Director of Public Policy.
