Foundations on the Hill 2023 in Photos
#FOTH2023 was an examination of philanthropy’s responsibilities and privileges as a partner to government agents. Nonprofit tax policy, the rise of populism, the 118th Congress, and much more was on the table for discussion from Feb. 27 to March 1. We also shared time connecting with colleagues from both the public and nonprofit sectors at a Capitol Hill reception.
