About this event

Join Philanthropy Northwest March 12-14 in Washington, DC, for Foundations on the Hill 2018!

Foundations on the Hill (FOTH) is an annual convening that brings together foundation leaders from across the country for meetings with Congress about key issues of importance to foundations and philanthropy. FOTH is presented by United Philanthropy Forum in partnership with the Alliance for Charitable Reform and Council on Foundations. Each year, Philanthropy Northwest leads a delegation from our six-state region.

Regardless of your experience doing policy work or participating in legislative visits, we invite and encourage you to join the PNW delegation!

FOTH is the one time each year when philanthropy speaks with a strong, collective voice on Capitol Hill. Through our meetings, we will build relationships with our members of Congress, educate them about philanthropy’s impact in our region, better position our foundations as resources on public policy issues and connect with other funders interested in public policy.

Philanthropy Northwest staff will provide training and support to delegation participants leading up to FOTH.
