    Join Funders Together's new Youth Network in Cleveland, Ohio! 

    During Foundations for Youth Success, Funders Together's two-year community of practice focused on youth homelessness, members identified in-person convenings as one of the most valuable parts of the community. In addition to hearing about inspiring local work, convenings allowed members to connect with peers and hear about innovative work happening across the country. 

    As we launch Funders Together's NEW Youth Network we are excited to announce our first in-person convening, in Cleveland, Ohio! We hope you join us to learn about the exciting work happening in Cleveland and to meet other members of this new network.

    Exact timing is still TBD. Please email Jennifer Olney at jennifer@funderstogether.org if you are interested in joining this group.

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.

-Nancy Frees Fountain, Managing Director at The Frees Foundation
