United Philanthropy Forum offers several unique sponsorship opportunities for Forum events that bring together our membership of nearly 100 regional and national philanthropy-serving organizations (PSOs) representing more than 7,000 philanthropic organizations across the country.
Both our annual conference and our national policy events — Foundations on the Hill and the Philanthropy + Policy Institute — allow sponsors to reach key decision-makers with direct access and connections to the largest and broadest range of philanthropic organizations that play a vital leadership role in our sector. Your sponsorship will demonstrate your support for their important work to set the agendas for philanthropy leaders, highlight best practices and new ideas for the field, lead change in the field, and much more.
The 2023 Forum Annual Conference, which is being held on July 17-19, 2023 in New York City, is unlike any other event in the philanthropy sector. It is the only event that brings together people from all of the country’s philanthropy associations and networks—philanthropy-serving organizations (PSOs)—that play a key role in advancing, informing, mobilizing and supporting the field. It will be the nation’s largest gathering of the CEOs and staff of regional and national PSOs, bringing together more than 350 philanthropy leaders.
For more information about sponsorship levels and benefits, please see our 2023 Forum Conference Sponsorship Page. If you have questions about 2023 conference sponsorship please contact Ivana Bikombe.
Foundations on the Hill & Philanthropy + Policy Institute
For 2024, United Philanthropy Forum offers several unique sponsorship opportunities to reach roughly hundreds of sector leaders and advocates from across the country. These opportunities allow sponsors to show support for bolstering philanthropy’s voice on Capitol Hill and strengthening the public policy and advocacy capacity of PSO leaders, members, and staff.
Sponsorships are available for two related events:
Foundations on the Hill
The 21st Annual Foundations on the Hill (FOTH) is being held February 25-28, 2024, in Washington, D.C. FOTH is the largest annual public policy and advocacy conference dedicated solely to the philanthropic sector. Each year, FOTH brings together more than 300 philanthropic and nonprofit leaders from across the country for a full public policy conference experience. The event is the one time each year when philanthropy speaks with a strong, collective voice on Capitol Hill.
Your sponsorship of this one-of-a-kind national event will put you in front of key philanthropy thought leaders and sector advocates from nearly every state and demonstrate your support for amplifying philanthropy’s voice on critical policy issues.
Interested sponsors can find a detailed description of the conference, participants, sponsorship opportunities, and sponsor benefits on the FOTH 2024 Sponsorship Package and commit to sponsorship by filling out the FOTH 2024 Sponsorship Form.
Philanthropy + Policy Institute
The premier opportunity for sector advocates and leaders to learn together and strengthen their policy and advocacy capacity, United Philanthropy Forum's Philanthropy + Policy Institute is designed to cultivate and reinforce the public policy skill set of PSO leaders, staff, and their foundation members, uplifting a strategic and collective approach toward advocacy, public policy, and government relations.
The Institute brings together 60-80 CEOs and policy staff working for regional and national PSOs and their policy volunteer leaders from foundation members.
