Find Your Policy + Advocacy Liaison

While not all PSOs focus on public policy every day, the nature of our work reflects a recognition of the value of a collective voice. United Philanthropy Forum Policy + Advocacy Liaisons (PALs) are designated PSO staff who serve as their respective organizations' lead policy and advocacy representatives, bolstering the network’s collective voice in support of shared priorities.

PALs also serve as Foundations on the Hill (FOTH) Delegation Captains:

  • mobilizing their foundation members to participate in FOTH
  • coordinating meetings with lawmakers and federal officials, and
  • preparing their team for successful meetings on Capitol Hill.

If you want to participate in FOTH and your state, region, and/or advocacy issue area isn’t listed here, please contact Forum Senior Director of Public Policy Matthew L. Evans.
