Foundations on the Hill 2024

foth logo

Convene with fellow foundation leaders, staff and sector advocates for three full days of advocacy, networking, collaboration and learning at Foundations on the Hill (FOTH). Hosted by United Philanthropy Forum in partnership with Independent Sector and Council on Foundations, FOTH is our sector's largest annual public policy and advocacy gathering dedicated solely to the philanthropic sector.

Now, as a full public policy conference, in addition to meeting with legislators and government officials, FOTH attendees will be able to attend pre-conference programming, conference keynotes, expert panel sessions and several receptions.
Year after year, we have demonstrated that when advocates and leaders come together and speak to Congress in a unified voice, we can make a lasting impact by promoting a strong sector and advocating for vibrant, healthy and equitable communities across the country. At FOTH, we come together to use our voices to encourage our elected officials to support key legislation, inform them about the unique and vital role charitable giving plays in America and gain their support for the philanthropic sector.
Visit the Foundations on the Hill webpage to register, view the agenda, download resources and reserve your hotel room by Friday, February 9. Philanthropy Ohio staff will provide planning and support to the Ohio delegation participants leading up to FOTH. For questions, contact Deborah Aubert Thomas.
