Foundations On The Hill

My badge at Foundations on the Hill last week sported a blue ribbon that read “First-time Attendee.” Ah, a newbie, fresh face, initiate.

In the news business, some of the best advice I ever got from an editor was: “Show me. Don’t tell me.” In other words, the most compelling articles are usually packed with descriptions and real examples and people speaking for themselves.

“If we are not at the table, we run the risk of being on the menu.” How I remember that comment from last year’s Foundations on the Hill (FOTH). Sure enough, we had a close call this past season with efforts to trim the charitable deduction.
