Foundations on the Hill (FOTH) brings together foundation leaders from across the country for meetings with Congress about key issues of importance to foundations and philanthropy. FOTH is presented by United Philanthropy Forum, in partnership with the Alliance for Charitable Reform and Council on Foundations. Foundation trustees and staff work with IPA, along with other regional or national philanthropy serving organizations, to schedule meetings on Capitol Hill to personally discuss their work with members of Congress.

Foundations on the Hill is the one time each year when philanthropy speaks with a strong, collective voice on Capitol Hill. 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. This year in the midst of tax reform we encourage as many foundations to join in this effort as possible to preserve and protect the full value and scope of the charitable deduction.

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 and corporate foundations and giving programs. We welcome seasoned foundation representatives and newcomers alike. Training and support will be provided through IPA staff.

If you don’t know who the FOTH contacts are for your state, please see our state directory.
