Engaging in public policy is critical to our mission leading and equipping Ohio philanthropy to be effective partners for change in our communities. We build and strengthen relationships with funders and policymakers to support policies that bolster the charitable sector and improve Ohio’s communities, incorporating an equity lens in policy analysis and a process for taking position on divisive or controversial or partisan issues or legislation. Under the guidance of our Public Policy Committee, Philanthropy Ohio undertakes policywork in the key impact areas of education, health, housing, tax reform and promoting charitable giving. The Philanthropy Ohio Legislative Agenda details this work.
