2018 Post-Election Briefing: Philanthropy at the Crossroads


Join NFG's Funders for a Just Economy on November 27, 2018 in Washington, DC, for the 2018 Post-Election Briefing: Philanthropy at the Crossroads. Note: This meeting is free of charge and open to foundation representatives and philanthropic advisors only. 

This November, the whole House of Representatives, a third of the Senate, 36 governorships, and many state legislature seats are up for election. The results of this year’s midterm elections will have an enormous impact in shaping the political landscape for years to come.  Assessing the new policy and funding environment will be critical as we build compelling and successful agendas for advancing our work to support struggling families, workers and communities. 

Join us for interactive sessions on:

  • The 2018 American electorate (who voted and why);

  • How the election outcomes will impact opportunities and challenges facing families, workers and communities across the nation; and

  • What the results mean for our work and emerging opportunities for alignment and collective action.

Don't miss Good Jobs, Supports for Work and the Changing Economy: a session with Funders for a Just Economy and GIST. This discussion will cover the impact of the elections on economic security and workers rights and what will be in play at the state and federal level. Participants will explore what messages resonated with voters and what this tells us about moving public and political will, with an eye toward longer-term strategy. Participants will also have the opportunity to share and seek advice for advancing their work.
