Foundations on the Hill 2019
Join us for Foundations on the Hill, where foundation executives and staff, board members, and philanthropic leaders meet with their federal lawmakers in Washington. Hosted by United Philanthropy Forum, the gathering brings foundation leaders together with their elected representatives to discuss key issues of importance to foundations and philanthropy.
The Council of New Jersey Grantmakers is delegation captain for New Jersey participants. CNJG will organize and schedule the congressional meetings. This opportunity is a valuable benefit of CNJG membership that helps raise lawmakers’ awareness of the vital work you do and inform them about issues CNJG members care about. If you are interested in attending or need more information please contact Theresa Jacks.
The aim 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
It is critical that elected officials hear from their foundation constituents. On behalf of New Jersey grantmakers, CNJG is pleased to have developed relationships with our representatives over the years as a result of FOTH. A meeting in Washington shows elected officials an extra level of dedication and commitment to your cause and the work of the philanthropic sector.
Registration for FOTH is available on the United Philanthropy Forums website
The registration fee is $175 per person.
Visit the United Philanthropy Forum website for the schedule of events. CNJG will plan meetings with our US Senators and House members on the afternoon of Tuesday, March 12, and from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm on Wednesday, March 13.
CNJG members attending FOTH will need to make their own hotel reservations.
