Join the Community Foundation for the first Funders' Roundtable luncheon of 2017 when Anna Chu (Vice President for Income Security and Education at the National Women’s Law Center) will brief us on federal policy changes in the works and what those could mean for our favorite causes here at the local level.

From there, we’ll open up the discussion so we can share and hear from each other about key priorities for the coming year, strategies for giving effectively, and new ideas for how we can partner to make a deeper impact. To jumpstart the conversation, we will call on Julian Haynes (Meyer Foundation) and Mala Thakur (Children's Opportunity Fund) to share their fresh perspectives on the needs and untapped opportunities here in the county.

Anna Chu - Vice President for Income Security and Education at the National Women’s Law Center
Julian Haynes – Program Officer, Meyer Foundation
Mala Thakur – Executive Director, the Children’s Opportunity Fund

Space is limited. To reserve your spot for the March 23rd Funders’ Roundtable, please contact Kevin Donnelly at or 301-495-3036 x 162.

About the Funders' Roundtable of Montgomery County
These quarterly free lunch events provide representatives of local companies and foundations with an opportunity to get acquainted, learn more about Montgomery County funding priorities, and share best practices. The events are open to grantmakers only, and each time we have anywhere from 15 to 30 attendees. There is a different topic for each luncheon – education, health care, etc. - selected in advance by the group.

Lunch is provided courtesy of our Funders’ Roundtable sponsors: The Community Foundation, Chevy Chase Trust, Jim and Carol Trawick Foundation, and the Washington Regional Association of Grantmakers. If your fund, foundation or company makes grants in Montgomery County, you’ll want to join our informal lunch group!
