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

Funders Together and Philanthropy New York Convening

Philanthropy New York and Funders Together to End Homelessness invite you to join funders in New York City to discuss innovative solutions and current opportunities to increase housing stability and ultimately end youth and young adult homelessness in the city. In December 2015, New York City announced it had ended chronic veteran homelessness. By coordinating efforts and developing public-private partnerships the city was able to prioritize this population and achieve this ambitious goal over a two-year period. Now, efforts across the country are applying learnings from the work to end chronic veteran homelessness to youth and young adults and other seemingly intractable social issues. We hope you will join us on November 1, 2017, 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. to highlight your work on these initiatives and to help engage funders working in areas like health, education, justice reform, and gender equity in the movement to end youth homelessness in New York City. 

RSVP below to learn more.

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.
