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

Anne Miskey

Executive Director

anne_sized.jpgAnne’s diverse background includes many years in both the corporate and not-for-profit sector. During her years working in the community, first as a corporate funder, then with United Way, and finally at the Oakville Community Foundation, she recognized the importance of effective collaboration and working at a systems level.  She has led research projects using data to determine community needs and effective solutions; Anne was responsible for building a number of cross-sector collaboratives that focused on a variety of issues including poverty, diversity, children’s and senior’s mental health, and the arts. She brings this expertise to Funders Together, where she is passionate about promoting the philanthropic community’s catalytic role in ending homelessness, working with government to create public-private partnerships, and advocating for funding and policies which end, rather than manage, homelessness.

Anne has served recently on the Board of Directors of Oakville Galleries, a contemporary art museum, and currently sits on the Advisory Board of the Siemer Institute for Family Stability. Anne has been active in the field of bereavement and infant/child loss, and has studied in Spain and France, as well as Seattle and San Diego, and has a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Lethbridge, Alberta and a Master of Divinity degree from the University of Toronto.  

Anne feels lucky to have the support of an amazing family and wonderful staff.

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.

-Nancy Frees Fountain, Managing Director at The Frees Foundation
