WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Trustees, executives, and staff of grantmaking foundations and regional associations of grantmakers.
Foundations on the Hill is an opportunity for grantmakers to meet with their federal lawmakers in Washington, D.C. and share the impact philanthropy has on society. This two-day legislative conference is co-sponsored by the Council on Foundations and the Forum of Regional Associations of Grantmakers. This partnership effectively combines the Council’s expertise on legal and legislative matters with the regional associations’ expertise on local philanthropy.
During Foundations on the Hill, foundation trustees, executives, and staff, working with their regional association, schedule meetings on Capital Hill to personally discuss their work with members of Congress. In addition to congressional meetings, participants attend training sessions and a breakfast event featuring remarks by a member(s) of Congress.
