What's in Store for 2023
2023 Budget and Tax Briefing: EOF hosts an annual Budget and Tax Briefing to provide funders and philanthropic advisors with a unique opportunity to learn about and discuss why federal and state budget and tax work matters to national, state and local philanthropy. This year’s Briefing will be held on April 20 in Arlington, VA.
Fall Meeting: EOF holds a second meeting each year in Washington, DC on emerging topics of interest identified by our voluntary Steering Committee and membership. Our 2023 Fall meeting is TBA.
Funder Networks: Time-limited working groups offer the opportunity for information sharing and learning as well as the coordination and alignment of investments. Potential funder networks for 2023 are in development.
EITC Pooled Fund: Launched in 2012, the EITC Pooled Fund supports rapid response, campaign and policy development efforts to help build public support for the federal and state EITCs, other tax credits and cash support for struggling families. In 2023, the Fund will also support an update of the Program Participation Dashboard (providing state-by-state data on participants in the EITC, SNAP, Medicaid and CHIP and SSI), and explore opportunities to EITC policy and grassroots organizing funders together to share strategies, questions and learnings.
Law & Social Policy Legacy Award: Established in 2020, a $10,000 award will be given annually, through 2030 to recognize organizations defending and advocating for low-wage workers’ rights. Our 2023 winner will be announced in March and recognized at our Annual Budget and Tax Briefing on April 20, 2023. The 2024 call for nominations will open in October.
Care Economy Narrative Change Project: A group of six philanthropy support organizations – EOF, Asset Funders Network, Early Childhood Funders Collaborative, Grantmakers In Aging, Grantmakers In Health, and Disability and Philanthropy Forum – have agreed to collaborate to develop a national landscape analysis of narrative change efforts across the care economy, including child care and early learning, paid leave, long-term services and supports for older adults and people with disabilities, and supports for paid care workers, including higher wages, benefits, and workplace rights and protections. Final products may include a searchable table of projects and publications, short summary of findings with data visualizations, and a national webinar to share the project findings.
