No funder has the resources to end homelessness alone. Funders can play a powerful role in convening diverse stakeholders, facilitating system-wide collaboration, identifying key gaps, and leveraging public funds in their homelessness system. There is power in philanthropy speaking with one voice.
At Funders Together to End Homelessness, we believe collaboration is the key to ensuring the success of programs, initiatives, and solutions and one of our strategic goals is to provide opportunities for funders to gather, share, and learn together.
Funders Together programming, such as in-person events and webinars, allow for opportunities to learn and share among peers. As a member, you receive access to member-only events and discounted rates to other programming. See what upcoming events we are offering as well as partner events where Funders Together will be at representing the work of our members.
At Funders Together, we work to facilitate information sharing and scale best practices. One of the ways we do this is through issue- and community-based learning communities. We currently have learning communities around policy work in California, employment and housing, racial equity, youth and young adult homelessness, and United Ways.
At Funders Together, we support the dedicated collaboration of committed foundations, United Ways, and corporate partners who work as one to prevent and end homelessness in their communities. On this page, learn about collaboratives focused on working together, sharing information and promising practices, and increasing the power of philanthropy in communities. You can also start a network in your own community. Learn more about building a funders network in our Funder Resources section.
In addition to geographic networks and collaboratives, Funders Together has three issue-based opportunities for funders to connect on an on-going basis.
