PolicyWorks Institute 2020
March 8-9, 2020

United Philanthropy Forum’s PolicyWorks Institute is the primary opportunity for regional and national philanthropy-serving organizations (PSOs) to take a “deep dive” together over several days to strengthen their policy and advocacy work. Join the policy staff from PSOs and their foundation members to enhance your organization’s capacity to engage more effectively in advocacy, public policy and government relations works.  PolicyWorks Institute is for UPF members who work on advocacy and policy issues for their PSO or are interested in building skills and capacity in this arena and for foundations that belong to Forum members that are focused on advocacy and public policy as funders or serve on a PSO’s board or policy committee.

Foundations on the Hill 2020
March 9-11, 2020

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. 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.  Foundations on the Hill is for UPF members and their foundation members. Foundations who are not members of a national or regional PSO in the Forum are also welcome to participate and will be assigned to a delegation from their region by the Forum.
