In early 2015, Funders Together will launch Foundations for Youth Success, a national philanthropic initiative focused on the funders’ role in ending youth homelessness. The cornerstone of this initiative will be a community of practice, through which funders will share and build knowledge about best practices and effective solutions for our young people.
This meeting will serve as our initial planning meeting, where funders will share their current work, raise pressing questions, and help shape the goals, objectives, and scope of the community of practice. Some of the funders in the room will be deeply engaged in the issue of youth homelessness already. Others will be exploring an entirely new funding portfolio. But everyone will have a chance to learn how philanthropy is currently approaching the issue and advise the direction of the community of practice.
This event is for funders. If you are not a funder but you are interested in connecting with our youth homelessness work, please contact Alexis Perlmutter.
