2021 Virtual Funders Institute
Funders Together to End Homelessness’ annual Funders Institute on September 28-30, 2021! The Funders Institute is one of Funders Together's annual events that brings funders together to learn, connect, and act to end homelessness and advance racial and housing justice. Over these three days, participants will hear from leaders in the field, make new connections with funders from across the country, and find joy together.
"The connections we've made through Funders Together, the insight into what's happening at the federal level, and the intellectual architecture you provide for how to structure philanthropic work around racial equity have been incredibly helpful." --FTEH member
This year, join us as we dive deep on what narrative change research is telling us, how philanthropy can fight against the criminalization of homelessness, and what's happening nationally to push for housing as a human right and housing justice. We're also building in more time for networking and for participants to hear about what other funders are working on with topics ranging from an affordable housing initiative, eviction prevention, and equitable evaluation. This will be an incredibly timely Funders Institute you won't want to miss!
