  • CNJG Public Policy Fellow: I didn't know what I didn't know | Council of New Jersey Grantmakers
    the policy agenda then arrived to CNJG s office on Thursday to see members of countless regional associations nonprofits corporations and foundations come together to discuss issues that mattered to them When I began my fellowship the America Gives More Act was uniting the sector Prior to this experience I had no idea how many pieces there were to the policy puzzle This understanding that policy takes place in the office at the coffee shop on the phone with colleagues in blog posts and just about everywhere else seems like something I should have known before going to school for policy But even with my experience in corporate philanthropy multiple nonprofits and government offices I never really saw it Luckily this key issue and my whole fellowship experience provided me the opportunity to see the many sides of a debate beyond the halls of Congress I feel grateful that my first step into the policy world was with the Council One highlight was Foundations on the Hill where I met many Congressional staff members and my own Representative These visits provide an opportunity to further build relationships between foundations in the state and those legislating on our behalf and continue education on the issues that matter most to the sector I now feel confident navigating the tunnels between Cannon and Rayburn buildings and I understand why experienced staff don t wear high heels Most of all I applied what I learned between high school and graduate courses to confirm that politics is about so much more than arguing legislators and the dramatic signing of a bill Before any of that actually happens it takes a village to shine the light on issues and fight to get them on the agenda Over the last eight months it became very clear that there is no village better suited to model this collective action than the philanthropic sector The intersection of policy and philanthropy warrants more than a passing discussion as they are not simply two things that collide from time to time when major issues arise Policy within philanthropy demands constant consideration even from those who think their role has nothing to do with policy Everything we in the sector do involves policy in some way That realization is only growing I am happy to now be a new resident of this intersection as I know I join a very qualified welcoming village Upon finishing my fellowship I joked with the staff of the Council that I didn t know what I didn t know I had no idea how much was happening behind the curtain For this new insight I will be forever thankful for my time at the Council and I look forward to continue sharing this experience and shining a light on the incredible work taking place Stephanie Holcomb served as the Public Policy Fellow at the Council of New Jersey Grantmakers from November 2014 to June 2015 She is currently completing her Master of Public Policy at the
