The Grantmakers Income Security Taskforce (GIST) hosts an annual Budget and Tax Briefing to provide funders and philanthropic advisors with a unique opportunity to learn about and discuss pressing political developments, federal and state budget and tax issues, and emerging advocacy and communications strategies for protecting programs and policies that support low-income families, workers and communities. This meeting is free of charge and open to foundation representatives and philanthropic advisors only.
President Trump and Congressional proposals call for massive cuts and harmful changes to federal healthcare and anti-poverty programs. And higher deficits – in large part due to a sweeping tax cuts bill that benefits wealthy households and profitable corporations- will be used to justify cuts and changes to health care, nutrition assistance and other supports that help everyday Americans make ends meet. Please join us for a funders conversation about why federal budget and tax work matters to national, state and local funders and how philanthropy can respond to meet this moment.
