Registration and the webpage for Foundations on the Hill 2015 is now available! Foundations on the Hill (FOTH) is hosted by the Forum of Regional Associations of Grantmakers, in partnership with the Council on Foundations. 

Foundations on the Hill is a two-day event that brings foundation leaders to DC for meetings with Congress about key issues of importance to foundations and philanthropy. Over 60 freshman members will join the 114th U.S. Congress. This, combined with ongoing proposals and conversations about tax reform, makes 2015 Foundations on the Hill an important time for philanthropy to meet with federal lawmakers. Once again, Foundations on the Hill is part of Philanthropy Week, co-sponsored by the Forum of Regional Associations, the Alliance for Charitable Reform and the Council on Foundations.
