Head to Washington with us in March for annual Foundations on the Hill meetings
Join us in Washington as we visit our representatives in Congress for Foundations on the Hill (FOTH) on March 20 – 22, 2017 in Washington, DC!
FOTH brings together philanthropy leaders from across the country to DC for meetings with Congress about key issues of importance to foundations and philanthropy. FOTH is presented by the Forum of Regional Associations of Grantmakers, in partnership with the Alliance for Charitable Reform and Council on Foundations.
CAF is working to schedule meetings on Capitol Hill and organizing a delegation of Colorado foundation leaders to represent the sector as we discuss the work of Colorado philanthropy with members of Congress. You can view additional details on the event, including a schedule of events, on the FOTH 2017 webpage.
Foundations on the Hill is the one time each year when philanthropy speaks with a strong, collective voice on Capitol Hill. This will be more critical than ever for #FOTH17, which is scheduled just a few months after the start of a new administration and a new Congress. We need to ensure that Congress understands the value of philanthropy to our communities and our country, and to stress the importance of doing all that we can to encourage more charitable giving to benefit our communities — particularly as discussions of tax reform become more prominent in Washington.
