Foundations on the Hill

Hosted by United Philanthropy Forum, in partnership with the Council on Foundations and Independent Sector, Foundations on the Hill (FOTH) is an annual opportunity for foundation executives, staff, and board members, philanthropy-serving organizations, and other philanthropic and social sector leaders to meet with their federal lawmakers, talk about issues of interest to philanthropy, and strengthen relationships with their representatives.

Foundations on the Hill 2023 is back in person and will take place in Washington, D.C. February 27th to March 1st. FOTH is the largest public policy gathering of the philanthropic sector. The event will kick off with a full day of programming on February 27th, followed by meetings on the Hill in the afternoon on February 28, and all day on March 1. The Council will host a dinner for CNJG delegates in the evening on Tuesday, 2/28.

The overall purpose of Foundations on the Hill is to:

  • Inform and educate Congress about philanthropy
  • Advocate on issues affecting foundations
  • Build CNJG’s relationships with lawmakers and their staff
  • Create visibility for foundations and philanthropy on Capitol Hill
  • Encourage Congress to view foundations as resources on key public policy issues
