With health policy dominating the news recently, many funders are wondering what the potential changes could mean for our local community. Join us for our final Funders’ Roundtable of 2017 as we call on national and local health experts to discuss:

  • What potential opportunities and challenges should we be aware of as we think about our health-focused giving?  
  • How might the healthcare policy changes in the pipeline affect our philanthropic investments focused on housing, education, and helping families escape poverty?
  • What best practices and creative solutions should we bring in (or scale up) to address the needs of our local community? 
  • What unique role should philanthropy play in partnership with government, business, and nonprofit sectors to make a deeper impact? 


  • Anne De Biasi, Director of Policy Development, Trust for America’s Health
  • Celeste A. James, Director of Community Health Initiatives, Kaiser Permanente of the Mid-Atlantic States
  • Jacky Schultz, President, Suburban Hospital

Space is limited. To reserve your spot for the 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 2017 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!
