Funders Together is organizing multiple ways for our members to connect and share information about local responses to the impact of COVID-19 on people experiencing homelessness. In addition to regular webinars with field updates, we are organizing recurring, informal funder calls for funders to share what they’re seeing and doing and to seek support from other members.
These funder calls are active, discussion-based calls that we hope will be led and lightly facilitated by our members. Join these member calls if you want to share what is happening in your community related to supporting people experiencing homelessness during the COVID-19 pandemic and hear what other funders are doing in their communities.
Last week Portland passed a measure to tax wealthy households and large businesses in Portland, OR to raise money to fund homeless services. On this week's call, Elisa Harrigan, Housing Opportunities Program Officer at Meyer Memorial Trust, will talk about how they funded the outreach and messaging for advocacy efforts for this tax measure. While not designed as a COVID-19 response, this tax will have a significant impact during the recovery process. We hope you’ll join this week’s call to learn more about how Meyer helped this measure get passed and how they hope it will impact the recovery from COVID-19.
To sign up for this funder call, please RSVP below and Stephanie Chan, Director of Membership and Programs will send you the calendar invitation. We hope that as many people as possible will join via videoconference. We will take live notes, but these calls will not be recorded.
Member calls will take place every Wednesday afternoon from 3-4pm ET / 12-1pm PT until members decide otherwise.

Interested in hearing more general field updates?
If you are interested in hearing about what is happening in the field nationally and want more high-level information about how funders are responding in communities, we will hold period webinars with national leaders and more general updates about what we are hearing. We anticipate holding these webinars every few weeks or whenever there are substantive updates for the field.
Please note: Participation in our programming is limited to private funders, including foundations, United Ways, corporate giving programs, individual philanthropists, and philanthropy serving organizations (PSOs). You do not have to be a member of Funders Together to participate in this call. If you have questions about your eligibility to register, please contact Stephanie Chan, Director of Membership and Programs at Funders Together to End Homelessness.
