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

Webinar 3 | Decision-making Matters: A Deeper Application of the Racial Equity Impact Analysis Tool

January 24, 2019 | 1:00-2:30 pm EST

This tool from the Race Matters Toolkit consists of five questions that can be asked regarding any policy, practice, protocol, strategy, or decision, either existing or proposed. The intent of the tool is to test ideas to determine if there is a disparate impact by race. In this 90-minute session, participants dig deeper into the functionality of the tool and experience its capability to generate new solutions. The tool can be used immediately, with tasks residing on your desk no matter what kind of work you do.

    I am coming into this discussion in the middle. I have reviewed the materials from sessions 1 and 2. I want to confirm that the tool referenced here is the “back map” that was shared in session #2. Thanks for providing clarity for me. – Courtney Cushing Kiernat, Pohlad Family Foundation

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.
