Foundations on the Hill 2019
Foundations on the Hill (FOTH) is presented by United Philanthropy Forum. FOTH is a two-day event that brings together foundation leaders from across the country to DC for meetings with Congress about key issues of importance to foundations and philanthropy. Foundation trustees and staff work with their regional association to schedule meetings on Capitol Hill to personally discuss their work with members of Congress.
The purpose of #FOTH18 is to:
- Inform and educate Congress about philanthropy
- Create visibility for foundations and philanthropy on Capitol Hill
- Advocate on issues affecting foundations
- Encourage Congress to view foundations as resources on key public policy issues
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.
Foundations on the Hill is the one time each year when philanthropy speaks with a strong, collective voice on Capitol Hill. Please contact Vic Valentine if you are interested in participating.
