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.
We'll start our April 22 funder call with updates from Melissa Young, interim Senior Director of Research and Policy at Heartland Alliance. Melissa will walk us through how Heartland has been thinking about COVID-19 relief in three buckets: health and healing, economic opportunity, and safety and justice. You can see Heartland Alliance's specific policy recommendations here.
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.
