Grantmakers Forum of NY

A Resource for Legislators



The Grantmakers Forum of New York is committed to strengthening and promoting grantmaking throughout the region by creating a common voice for funders to advocate for public policies that build a positive image for philanthropy, encourage charitable giving and advance the nonprofit sector.

The Public Policy Committee works to engage and educate Grantmakers Forum members to realize their potential for individual and collective roles in the public policy process.  The Grantmakers Forum creates opportunities for public/private funder dialogues and provides information about federal, state and local policies that affect grantmakers and their interests in the nonprofit sector.
