A Philanthropy New York COLLABORATIVE EVENT presented with the Council on Foundations and the Forum of Regional Associations of Grantmakers.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Trustees, executives, and staff of grantmaking foundations and regional associations of grantmakers.
Since 2003, the Council on Foundations and the Forum of Regional Associations of Grantmakers have co-sponsored Foundations on the Hill, an annual opportunity for grantmakers to meet with their federal lawmakers in Washington, D.C. This partnership effectively combines the Council's expertise on legal and legislative matters with the regional associations' expertise on local philanthropy and the leverage they bring as local constituents.
During Foundations on the Hill, foundation trustees, executives and staff, working with their regional association, schedule meetings on Capitol 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.
The purpose of Foundations on the Hill 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
