Philanthropy & Government: Public-Private Partnerships and Government-Related Foundations

  • Arlington, VA

Hosted By: The Council on Foundations

Foundations have long engaged in public-private partnerships to advance diplomacy and development around the world by providing a neutral environment where governments can collaborate with the private sector, civil society organizations, and individuals in ways otherwise not possible. The foundation community in the US continues to thrive and innovate, and throughout its history, has included the establishment of a variety of foundation types, including private, community, and Government-Related foundations.

On Thursday March 12th, as part of Global Partnership Week, the Council of Foundations will host a discussion on Philanthropy and Government: Public Private Partnerships and Government-Related Foundations. Stephanie Powers, Senior Director for Policy and Partnerships will moderate the panel, featuring Foundation experts from the private and public sector to discuss:

• The history and work of private sector and Government-Related Foundations in the US;
• Best Practices for partnering with foundations;
• Experiences with securing long-term funding; and
• Lessons Learned in launching and running a Foundation (Private and Government Related)

We hope you’ll join the discussion! Please RSVP to partnerships@cof.org by March 10.
