One Size Does Not Fit All: Foundation Roles in Policy Change
Hamilton Crowne Plaza | Washington, DC
This strategy session is part of the GIH Fall Forum.
9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. (Registration and continental breakfast 8:00 - 9:00 a.m.)
An increasing number of health foundations view policy change as an important aspect of their mission, but priorities, strategic roles, and investment approaches vary considerably among funders. This session is designed to address the opportunities and challenges facing policy-engaged funders, while recognizing philanthropic diversity in terms of goals and activities. The agenda will include a consideration of the ways funders are leveraging non-grant resources (such as in-house expertise and reputational assets) to advance policy change, an exploration of the implications of geographic focus (local, state, and national) on funders’ policy strategies, and a discussion of evaluation methods that support strategic learning regarding policy investments. The interactive nature of this small group meeting promoted candid conversation and collaboration among funders seeking to leverage the power of public policy to achieve improvements in population health.
GIH Funding Partners: $200 ($350 if attending both days of the Fall Forum)
Non-Funding Partners: $400 ($700 if attending both days of the Fall Forum)
