2019 PolicyWorks Institute
The PolicyWorks Insititute, presented by United Philanthropy Forum, is the one opportunity each year for regional and national philanthropy-serving organizations to take a “deep dive” together to strengthen your policy and advocacy work.
By attending the Institute, philanthropy-serving organization (PSO) staff and volunteer leaders will:
- strategize on effective tactics for encouraging funders to support systems change;
- learn promising approaches for 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.
Directly following the conclusion of the PolicyWorks Institute, the Forum will kick off the 2019 Foundations on the Hill (March 11-13) at a joint reception in the evening on Monday, March 12, followed by FOTH programming and Hill visits. Please contact Vic Valentine if you are interested in participating.
The 2018 PolicyWorks Institute and 2019 Foundations on the Hill programming will take place at the Liaison Capitol Hill, located just blocks from the Capitol at 415 New Jersey Ave NW, Washington, DC 20001. Rooms are available at the discounted rate of $329/night through February 6, 2019. Reservations can be made online or by calling 888-513-7445 and referencing the "United Philanthropy Forum."
