This month’s Public Policy Roundup comes days after our trip to the State Capitol for Philanthropy in Sacramento Day. Philanthropy California, our alliance with Northern California and San Diego Grantmakers, convened over 20 funders from across the state to educate policymakers about the 2020 Census, advance philanthropic goals by building relationships with legislators, and identify areas of strategic collaboration across sectors. Our visits were timed as the Legislature worked to iron out differences between Senate and Assembly versions of the budget.
