SCG members are invited to join the California delegation to this year's Foundations on the Hill event in Washington, DC. (Contact Karen Freeman at [email protected] to learn more about joining the California delegation.)

Foundations on the Hill (FOTH) is hosted by the Forum of Regional Associations of Grantmakers, in partnership with the Council on Foundations. FOTH is a two-day event that brings foundation leaders to DC for meetings with Congress about key issues of importance to foundations and philanthropy. Foundation trustees and staff work with their regional association to schedule meetings on Capitol Hill to personally discuss their work with members of Congress.

The purpose of Foundations on the Hill is to:
  • Inform and educate Congress about philanthropy
  • Create visibility for foundations and philanthropy on Capitol Hill
  • Advocate on issues affecting foundations
  • Encourage Congress to view foundations as resources on key public policy issues

Please use #FOTH16 for any social media posts around Foundations on the Hill.

The special conference rates for The Washington Hilton are guaranteed until March 17, 2016. However, please note that rooms may sell out before the hotel reservation deadline. All reservations must be guaranteed with a major credit card or be accompanied by the first night’s room deposit. The hotel will charge the participant’s credit card one night room deposit equal to the applicable room rate for each room reservation. All credit cards used to reserve rooms will be charged immediately. Discounted conference group rates are available on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last. In other words, while there is inventory available within the group’s room block, once the room block is sold out we are unable to guarantee you the group rate.
