A national network of funders supporting strategic, innovative, and effective solutions to homelessness

2019 Funders Forum: Save the Date

Funders Together to End Homelessness is excited to offer our annual Funders Forum before 2019 Solutions for Individual Homeless Adults: A National Conference in San Diego. The Funders Forum is a one-day event for philanthropy to learn from experts and each other about philanthropy’s role in preventing and ending homelessness. This year, we will be focusing on how funders can help support solutions for ending individual homelessness. 

We have not yet opened registration for the Funders Forum. If you'd like to be notified when registration opens, please RSVP below and we will notify you as soon as it opens. Space is limited for this event, so if you plan to attend, please register early once registration opens!

If you are a funder who is interested in attending 2019 Solutions for Individual Homeless Adults: A National Conference, please register for that conference through the National Alliance to End Homelessness. We recommend registering as soon as possible, as registration tends to sell out quickly.

**Please note: This convening is only open to private funders, and United Ways. If you have questions about your eligibility to participate, please contact Stephanie Chan, Director of Membership and Programs, at stephanie@FundersTogether.org

We joined Funders Together because we believe in the power of philanthropy to play a major role in ending homelessness, and we know we have much to learn from funders across the country.

-Christine Marge, Director of Housing and Financial Stability at United Way of Greater Los Angeles

I am thankful for the local partnerships here in the Pacific Northwest that we’ve been able to create and nurture thanks to the work of Funders Together. Having so many of the right players at the table makes our conversations – and all of our efforts – all the richer and more effective.

-David Wertheimer, Deputy Director at Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

Very often a lack of jobs and money is not the cause of poverty, but the symptom. The cause may lie deeper in our failure to give our fellow citizens a fair chance to develop their own capacities, in a lack of education and training, in a lack of medical care and housing, in a lack of decent communities in which to live and bring up their children.

-President Lyndon B. Johnson, 1964 State of the Union Address

Funders Together has given me a platform to engage the other funders in my community. Our local funding community has improved greatly to support housing first models and align of resources towards ending homelessness.

-Leslie Strnisha, Vice President at Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland

Our family foundation convenes local funders and key community stakeholders around strategies to end homelessness in Houston. Funders Together members have been invaluable mentors to us in this effort, traveling to our community to share their expertise and examples of best practices from around the nation.
