Public Policy

Join David Kass, the Council's Vice President of Government Affairs, for a members only discussion on the Initiative to Accelerate Charitable Giving draft policy proposal. We will discuss what is included in the proposal and what we are hearing from the Hill. Most importantly though, we want to hear from you! What questions do you have?

"How much should we spend?" It's an essential question for all funders and an especially complex one for endowed private foundations. Based on an upcoming issue brief of the same name, this webinar will help you revisit your foundation's role as an investment steward. It will introduce the surprisingly wide spectrum of equally valid choices endowed foundations have made in balancing permanence, purpose, and payout. And it will provide ideas for helping your own board or family thoughtfully answer "How much should we spend?"

The health and economic impact of COVID-19 has continued to ripple through communities across the country and the world. Congress is discussing additional legislation to address some of the challenges faced by workers, businesses, nonprofits, and communities. Hear from experts about how provisions being discussed may impact the charitable sector. For any questions please reach out to govt@cof.org. A reminder this conversation is off the record.
