2017 Pennsylvania Foundations Public Policy Conference:
Amplifying The Voice of The Sector

May 1-2, 2017 | Radisson Hotel Harrisburg, Camp Hill, PA

Join your funding colleagues from across the state to develop the first-ever statewide philanthropic policy network for collaboration and impact.  Now more than ever, Pennsylvania philanthropies must come together to define a shared public policy understanding that can amplify the voice of the sector, to sharpen their focus on the impact of the budget on the social safety net and the nonprofit community. Conference participants will discuss how foundations can come together to address four critical public policy issues facing the Commonwealth, all against the backdrop of an uncertain state budget: the opioid crisis; fair education funding; communities in crisis/Act 47; and human services funding.

Follow this link to learn more and register. Presented by the Council on Foundations. All Pennsylvania foundations are welcome.

In addition, through The Hamilton Family Foundation, she was committed to improving the equality of educational opportunities for low-income children and youth, grades K-12, in the cities of Philadelphia and Camden.
