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

Funders Networks and Collaboratives Peer Sharing

Wednesday, December 12 | 3pm EST | 2pm CST | 1pm MST | 12pm PST

There are several funder collaboratives and funder networks, just like yours, working to prevent and end homelessness across the country. We know that through strategic partnering, we are able to work beyond our reach as one organization and create change in more effective and efficient ways. 

Join us for this network and collaborative focused member call as we bring leaders from those emerging and established networks and collaboratives together to learn and share their opportunities and challenges. This call will provide a space for your network to talk with others that are doing similar work. During the call, we will also explore how Funders Together can continue to support the work of your community’s funders collaborative or network.

Please RSVP below if you are able to attend. We look forward to a dynamic and enlightening conversation!


Please note: This call is only open to members of Funders Together, private funders, United Ways, and philanthropy-serving organizations. If you have questions about participating, please contact Tabitha Blackwell, Director of Networks and Programs.

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.
