Funders Together to End Homelessness (FTEH) believes that we can end homelessness in the United States, and philanthropy will play a critical role in this effort. But first, we must come together to share what works, learn from each other, and challenge each other to develop innovative, long-lasting solutions.
The FTEH listserv will provide a space for members – grantmakers working to end and prevent homelessness – to pose questions to other funders in real time, share ideas and lessons learned, and communicate upcoming events, reports, and opportunities for investment in communities around the country.
The member listserv is intended for funders only. The information shared on this listserv should not be forwarded without explicit permission of FTEH.
Policies and Procedures
The FTEH member listserv may be used to:
- function as a forum for the exchange of questions and answers, discussions and brainstorming about issues related to philanthropy role in ending and preventing homelessness;
- inform funders of new publications and policies enacted;
- inform funders of ongoing research and research findings;
- announce meetings, seminars, and conferences that may be of interest to other funders; and
- request assistance in locating additional relevant information.
All member organizations of FTEH will have access to the member listserv. This includes an unlimited number of staff within your foundation or United Way. Interns and volunteers may be added on a case by case basis. Please contact FTEH for further discussion.
All submissions will be reviewed and approved by FTEH before posting on the listserv. FTEH will aggregative responses to questions posed on the listserv and send out one email with the collected responses approximately one week after the initial question.
Please ensure that the messages you post are appropriate for our audience and not just one or two funders. Personal or irrelevant discussions take up valuable space on the listserv, and distract members away from more meaningful topic areas.
Use descriptive headings in the subject line for all messages that you post to the listserv. At the end of your messages, attach a standard identifier comprised of a few lines that identify you, your affiliation, and appropriate contact numbers (phone, fax, e-mail addresses). Do not include drawings, pictures, maps, graphics, etc. in the identifier lines since these materials may not be compatible on all systems.
Do not misrepresent yourself, or in any other way conceal your identity, or post anonymous messages on the listserv.
Do not alter the content or source of a message that has originated from another person’s computer with the intent to deceive.
FTEH reserves the right to modify or change the rules to maintain the best interests of our members.
Monitoring and Enforcement
The listserv must be used for business purposes only and in accordance with FTEH’s policies and procedures. FTEH reserves the right to remove anyone who violates this agreement from the listserv.
