Welcome to our two newest board members: Susan Bass Roberts of the Pohlad Family Foundation and Bill Major of Zarrow Family Foundations!
I was recently asked what was the most meaningful part of my work with Funders Together. Without hesitation, I answered with what I reflect on daily: I am blessed to be among people who tirelessly work for their community, our country, and, most importantly, people they may never meet; because they believe ending homelessness is imperative to our humanity. That housing is not only a basic right, it is the pathway to opportunity.
It's not too late to join Funders Together's newest community of practice focused on employment and homelessness.
