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

UPDATE: February Convenings in Oakland, CA


As a result of the spike in cases and hospitalizations related to COVID, the National Alliance to End Homelessness is shifting their February 2022 conference from an in-person to a virtual event. As such, Funders Together to End Homelessness is also canceling all in-person convenings we were hoping to have in Oakland in February. Please continue reading for updated information related to registration for the NAEH conference. 


National Alliance to End Homelessness Conference 

If you registered for the in-person NAEH conference through Funders Together:

If you are one of the ten funders who had registered for the in-person NAEH conference through Funders Together and submitted your registration fee through us, we will be issuing you a full refund in the coming days. If you do not receive a refund in a timely manner or have questions, please contact Tabitha Blackwell, Director of Networks and Programs. 

If you would like to attend the virtual conference, you will have to register yourself through NAEH. We will not be transferring any registrations for the in-person conference to the virtual conference. 

If you weren't planning on attending the in-person but would like to attend the virtual conference:

Holding the conference virtually gives NAEH the ability to open registration to many more people. If you or anyone you know are now interested in attending the virtual conference, registration will now be open from January 14 to February 7, 2022. The registration fee is $325 (no cancellation fees).

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.
