Now in its second year, Philanthropy Week in Washington, March 16-20, is a week-long series of events and activities that highlight the role of philanthropy in our society. Hosted by the Council on Foundations, the week provides an opportunity for philanthropic leaders to spend time on Capitol Hill highlighting the impact of philanthropy in Member’s districts and states as well as to other Washington based audiences. The leadership of foundations and grantmakers across the country has played a major role in improving communities. This year we will highlight the power of place based initiatives and collaboration to help empower communities.
The center piece event of Philanthropy Week will be Foundations on the Hill (FOTH), hosted by the Forum of Regional Associations of Grantmakers in collaboration with the Council.
