Join the Council for a quick 30-minute update on end-of-year congressional activity that will impact your work. Hear the latest on the state of play from our seasoned Capitol Hill consultants, and learn how you can take action on the charitable “tax extenders,” including the IRA Charitable Rollover, through our 5 Minutes for Philanthropy advocacy campaign.
This webinar will provide an overview of the new National Resource Network (NRN) and explore how place-based foundations can bring these resources to Mayors and local governments. The NRN is a new partner consortium, funded by a $10 million grant from the Department of Housing and Urban Development, that helps cities comprehensively tackle their toughest economic challenges. Hear how you can bring experts from NRN to assist local leaders to identify practical solutions, adopt best practices, and build the strategic partnerships needed to marshal public and private sector resources for economic growth and prosperity for all. The NRN works closely with HUD and the White House Council on Strong Cities, Strong Communities.
As we approach the end of the year, join Council Leadership as we take a look back at some highlights from 2015 and take a look forward at what’s on the horizon for 2016. Discussion will cover the multiple ways in which the Council has fostered community among philanthropic leadership and how our members have played an integral role in building community within their own neighborhoods.
