Foundations on the Hill (FOTH) is a two-day event that brings together hundreds of foundation leaders from across the country to meet with Congress to discuss issues of critical importance to philanthropy. FOTH is the one time each year when philanthropy speaks with a strong, collective voice on Capitol Hill.

With January 2019 marking the start of the 116th Congress with new congressional leadership, #FOTH19 is timed perfectly to help current and new elected officials understand the value of philanthropy to the social and economic fabric of our country, and to stress the importance of philanthropy and government working as equal partners at the table to ensure the continued health of our sector.

Presented by United Philanthropy Forum, Foundations on the Hill aims 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 and partner on key public policy issues.

Foundation trustees and staff participating in Foundations on the Hill will work with your regional or national philanthropy serving organization to schedule meetings on Capitol Hill. We welcome seasoned FOTH participants and newcomers alike. You’ll receive all the training and support you’ll need through the Delegation Captain for your state or region, who can also answer any questions you may have about your delegation’s participation in FOTH. All Delegation Captains represent Forum members.

Be sure to join us on March 11-13 for the most important advocacy event for philanthropy on Capitol Hill in 2019: Foundations on the Hill 2019.
