We are excited to announce that we will once again be offering an extended Funders Institute throughout the National Conference on Ending Homelessness. In addition to the valuable content planned for conference participants, each day will feature workshop sessions planned by Funders Together with content and discussion exclusively for private funders*.
This new format means you can register for the conference AND the Institute through Funders Together. Funders should NOT register through the National Alliance to End Homelessness. If you have any questions, please reach out to Jennifer Olney at firstname.lastname@example.org.
*Please note this event is exclusively for private funders including foundations and United Ways.
As funders increasingly turn their attention to preventing homelessness, we must also consider what it means to be both intentional and intersectional.
Join us at the 2018 Funders Institute, held in conjunction with the National Conference on Ending Homelessness, to learn how funders are uniquely positioned to help prevent homelessness. We will discuss how funders are thinking about prevention and how working intentionally with other systems is critical for success. Together, we’ll explore the intersections of homelessness and health, education, workforce development, criminal justice, and more.
Ending homelessness is too important for us to continue working alone. It is more important than ever for us to start working together, across silos, to strengthen other systems and prevent homelessness before it starts. Join this conversation to learn how other systems are thinking about housing stability and how your work is already helping to prevent homelessness. Throughout the day you will also hear from funders what they’re doing to prevent homelessness in their communities and specific ideas you can take home.
Don’t forget, this year’s Funders Institute will continue throughout the conference with more opportunities to connect with your funder peers and learn about what’s happening across the country.
