2018 Post-Election Briefing



2018 Post-Election Briefing: Philanthropy at the Crossroads

November 27, 2018 | 9:00-5:30pm | Washington DC




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.

Please join us for this free, post-election briefing for funders.  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.

This briefing is offered free of charge and open to funders and philanthropic advisors only.
