  • Webinar: The Divest/Invest Framework: What Does It Mean for Funders Working in Housing and Homelessness?

    Monday, November 4 | 1:00pm ET | 12:00pm CT | 11:00am MT | 10:00am PT

    Description:

    Cities of all sizes across the country are facing gentrification and affordable housing shortages due to rising rents, stagnant wages, and laws that criminalize homelessness and target low-income renters experiencing housing instability. Public resources currently invested in encouraging gentrification through policies and laws that target and criminalize people experiencing poverty would be better invested to protect and produce more quality, accessible, affordable housing, health care, education, and other infrastructure to support thriving communities and housing stability.  

    Funders can help build more just, thriving communities by investing in institutions and enterprises that value low-income residents, guard against uncontrolled gentrification, and protect residents from displacement. Join this webinar to learn about Neighborhood Funder Group (NFG)’s Democratizing Development Program and the Divest/Invest framework of their Funders for Justice program. We’ll also hear from other funders and organizations about the work they’re doing to create vibrant, stably housed communities that support the leadership of the residents from their community.  

    TO REGISTER: Please RSVP for this webinar below and Stephanie from Funders Together will send you a link to join via RingCentral Meetings.  

    About NFG  

    NFG’s Democratizing Development Program supports philanthropic institutions to invest in community residents to rise to create a new vision for development – one not driven by profit, speculation, and the influx of new corporate capital, but instead centered on community needs. This type of “democratized” community development is inspired by the leadership and vision of current residents holding public representatives, public agencies, and private investors accountable.  

    The Divest/Invest framework of NFG’s Funders for Justice program informs the Democratizing Development Program to divest from criminalization to empowering neighborhood change and opportunity. It supports resident leadership by providing resources and tools to funders to encourage funders support residents’ full engagement. Investing in communities fosters institutions and enterprises that value low-income residents, guards against uncontrolled gentrification, protects residents from displacement, and results in positive place-building outcomes for all members of the community. 

    Speakers:

    • Marbre Stahly-Butts, Executive Director, Law for Black Lives 

    • Martha Toll, Executive Director, Butler Family Fund 

    • Nile K. Malloy, Senior Program Manager, Democratizing Development Program, NFG

  • Philanthropy Northwest Webinar: The Foundation for Success is Housing Stability

    Friday, November 1 | 1:00pm ET | 12:00pm CT | 11:00am MT | 10:00am PT

    Description:

    Funders Together to End Homelessness is excited to organize a webinar for Philanthropy Northwest about the intersection of homelessness with other systems. This webinar is designed for Philanthropy Northwest members but is open to all funders, regardless of location. 

     

    If you care about health, education, workforce development, domestic violence, economic mobility, criminal justice, or building vibrant communities, you also care about housing and homelessness. Housing stability influences outcomes across many sectors, and there is research to prove it 

    In this webinar, Funders Together to End Homelessness will share how housing and homelessness are connected to almost all other systems and how, no matter what your funding priorities are, you can and should think about the role housing stability plays in the success of your community. Two funders from the Pacific Northwest will share how they think about the role housing plays in their grantmaking portfolios, even if they aren’t focused specifically on housing and homelessness.  

    At the end of this webinar, we hope you will: 

    • Understand how housing and homelessness intersect with nearly all other sectors, 
    • Have learned from other funders about how they incorporate housing stability and homelessness into their grant portfolios, and 
    • Walk away with new ideas or questions you can ask your grantees and community around their work and housing stability. 

    Please note: This webinar is open to private funders, United Ways, and philanthropy serving organizations and their members. The specific examples we will share will come from the Pacific Northwest, since this webinar is a collaboration between Funders Together to End Homelessness and Philanthropy Northwest, but the general content and framing will be relevant to all, regardless of geographic location.  

    If you are not logged into the Funders Together website, times are in eastern time. If you are logged in, time should reflect your current time zone.
