    Save the Date: 2024 California Philanthropy Convening on Housing Justice

    Los Angeles | Tuesday, February 13, 2024 | 9:00AM - 4:00PM PT

    Co-hosted by:

    Fund for an Inclusive California 

    We are looking forward to gathering all corners of philanthropy for a gathering to discuss how we can collectively support housing justice for all California's communities. 

    Please save the date to join us on Tuesday, February 13, 2024 at The California Endowment offices in Los Angeles.

    Hosted by the Fund for an Inclusive California (at the Common Counsel Foundation) and the California Homelessness and Housing Policy Funders Network (at Funders Together to End Homelessness), the California Philanthropy Convening on Housing Justice provides an opportunity for private philanthropy with diverse priorities to explore how housing justice efforts intersect with climate, health, immigrant rights, and economic justice movements. 

    We are putting together a deeply knowledgeable slate of peer funders and community leaders for participants to meet, learn from, and engage with through sessions and breakouts. This space will allow us to reimagine what is required from philanthropy to support organizing to build a state where all residents have access to affordable and safe housing as well as a voice in local and state policy setting.

    All philanthropy located in California or doing grantmaking in California is invited to attend, including those whose funding priorities aren’t directly in housing or homelessness.

    Registration information is coming soon. In the meantime, please hold February 13. 

    If you have any questions about the convening, please feel free to reach out to me at [email protected].

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.
