The Forum, Council on Foundations, and Alliance for Charitable Reform are excited to announce that the Foundations on the Hill (FOTH) 2013 website is now live! The website, www.foundationsonthehill.org, has a lot of great information and resources including hotel information, legislative resources, and meeting planning resources.
Foundations on the Hill will take place on March 19-20, 2013. FOTH is an annual event for grantmaker and regional association representatives to meet with their members of Congress to promote the important role philanthropy plays in serving the public good in your regions. Last year saw more than 220 foundation and grantmaking representatives from 35 states and the District of Columbia, including 80 first-time attendees. Next year’s event marks our 11th year partnering with the Council and our first year of full partnership with ACR.
Stipends for first-time attendees of FOTH will once again be available. Stipends are worth up to $1,200 of travel (air and ground) and hotel expenses. Additionally, the recipient’s regional association receives a $300 award to continue public policy and advocacy efforts in the region. Applicants must be a member of the Council, a regional association, or ACR. The application and requirements will be available on the FOTH website later this week.
