An initiative of the Council on Foundations
Philanthropy Week in Washington is a week of activities – some familiar and others new – themed around engaging policy makers in our Nation's Capitol. This series of in person and media events will demonstrate the vital role of charitable giving and its inextricable link to thriving communities. Philanthropic leaders will tell policymakers about philanthropy at work in the daily lives of their constituents and raise public awareness about the sector's successes – ranging from expanding access to education and supporting military families, to creating jobs and fostering innovation.
