People in Washington, D.C., are not typically in agreement. However, policy advisers, staffers, press, and elected officials alike agree that tax reform is coming, and everything is on the table. Including philanthropy.

There has never been a more important time for philanthropy to gather in our nation’s capital and demonstrate the incredible impact it has. It is critical that we educate members of Congress about how philan­thropy benefits their respective constituents. We must tell the stories of children educated, lives improved, neighborhoods reborn, and commu­nities strengthened. Together, we must showcase the work that private dollars do for the public good, underscore how philanthropic innovation tackles society’s most pressing problems, and explain how philanthropy strategically invests in long-term solutions to today’s challenges.

Join hundreds of your grantmaking colleagues for Foundations on the Hill to tell members of Congress that philanthropy is an independent, innovative investment in improving our communities.
