Foundations on the Hill (FOTH) is an annual opportunity for grantmakers to meet with their federal lawmakers in Washington, D.C. The purpose of FOTH is to educate Congress about philanthropy, create visibility for the philanthropic sector on Capitol Hill, advocate on issues affecting foundations, and encourage Congress to view foundations as a resource on key public policy issues. The event is co-sponsored by the Council on Foundations and the United Philanthropy Forum. Visit the FOTH website for more information.
IPA staff members attend FOTH each year, along with a delegation of foundation representatives. If you are interested in attending FOTH, contact Becky Honeywell (317.630.5200 ext. 111).
