The purpose of Foundations on the Hill 2023 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
  • Build relationships between philanthropy and lawmakers

While the philanthropic sector builds relationships with Congress year-round, FOTH is the one time a year when philanthropy comes together to speak with one voice to our elected leaders about the unique and vital role that charitable giving plays in America. At FOTH, we use our influence to persuade our elected officials to support critically important legislation for our sector and our communities and inform them about the unique and vital role that charitable giving plays in America. Please contact Shanetta Martin if you have questions or are interested in participating.

Foundations on the Hill 2023 programming will take place at the JW Marriott Washington DC, located at 1331 Pennsylvania Avenue NW Washington, DC 20004. The hotel is within walking distance of the White House and the National Mall. It is a short 10-minute drive to the Hill and less than a 5-minute walk to the Metro Center metro station.
