Grantmakers Income Security Taskforce (GIST), a national funders’ network focused on low-income families, sponsors an annual budget and tax briefing in Washington, DC.  This briefing provides funders with a unique opportunity to learn about and discuss why federal budget and tax work matters to national, state and local funders.

This year, GIST is joining with local partners to make this event accessible to grantmakers unable to travel to Washington, DC through virtual Budget and Tax Briefing watch parties.  Philanthropy Network Greater Philadelphia invites you to join us as we watch the keynote address from the 14th Annual GIST Budget and Tax Briefing for Grantmakers.

Bob Greenstein

Local watch parties will view a web cast of the keynote address on the federal budget and tax outlook from Bob Greenstein, President of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. Recognized as a national leader on fiscal policy issues, Mr. Greenstein will provide an overview on the key provisions in the federal budget, discuss current and upcoming budget debates and battles, and offer insights on the potential impact for low income families, workers and communities. 


Omar Woodard Immediately following the webcast of the briefing, we will engage in a moderated conversation led by Omar Woodard, Executive Director, GreenLight Fund to unpack what we heard and to discuss the potential implications for philanthropy in our region.

This session will be a brown bag lunch. Beverages and desserts will be provided.
