Washington Update LIVE!

Attending Foundations on the Hill in April? Curious about how the fast-paced, animated, and often complex political environment can trickle down to influence your work? Wondering about whether tax reform will ever happen and, when it does, how these changes will impact philanthropy?

During this webinar, you will hear how current debates here in our nation’s capital affect the work you do in your community. Experts discuss how what's happening on Capitol Hill could impact foundations, along with what is and is not on the radar screen of policymakers in Washington.

We all know that momentum is building for a major overhaul of our tax code, and it is imperative for philanthropic organizations to weigh in on the conversation. In addition, hear how smaller-scale policymaking this year could affect your work. Our panel of D.C. insiders will dive into these issues and discuss how you can engage effectively.
