2018 Public Policy Summit

Philanthropy is a driver of civil society. It fuels the programs and movements that shape our culture across communities. In this role, foundations are uniquely situated with the experience and expertise to lead the way forward on issues that affect people throughout our nation and across the globe. As leaders in philanthropy, it is our civic duty to extend this leadership to provide expert input in the policymaking process.

The Council’s inaugural Public Policy Summit, appropriately being hosted in the birthplace of American Democracy — historic Philadelphia — promises to engage foundation leaders, policy experts, media representatives, and current and retired Members of Congress and other elected officials in important conversations around the most pressing policy issues of the day.

This exciting and engaging event is an opportunity to learn, shape, and be heard. Plus, you will have the opportunity to exchange ideas and influence the positive impact that philanthropy — including the good work done by your organization — has on communities across the country and world.
