About Foundations on the Hill (FOTH)

A jointly sponsored program of Philanthropy Southwest and United Philanthropy Forum in collaboration with Alliance for Charitable Reform and 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. Our goals are to inform and educate Congress about philanthropy; create visibility for philanthropy on Capitol Hill; advocate on issues affecting foundations and communities; and encourage Congress to view foundations as a resource on key public policy issues. 

Who Should Attend?

FOTH is intended for anyone serving as a staff or board member for any type of foundation or other philanthropic organization, including but not limited to community foundations, family foundations, private independent foundations, corporate foundations, and giving programs. We welcome seasoned foundation representatives and newcomers alike. Training and support are provided.
