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

Funder Call: Diving Into the Funders Together Strategic Framework

Thursday, September 22 | 2pm EST | 1pm CST | 12pm MST | 11am PST

In July 2022, Funders Together to End Homelessness released our new Strategic Framework for our work as an organization and in partnership with our members. The framework is a continuation of the work we have already been doing and solidifies the pathways for our next phase in our organization’s evolution as we strive for housing and racial justice.

This funder call is an opportunity for philanthropy to learn more about our process to develop the framework, hear how we envision it being operationalized, and ask questions related to the framework and what it means for philanthropy and our collective work.

During the call, participants will hear from Funders Together board and staff providing their reflections on the framework. We’ll then open it up for candid discussion for attendees to share their thoughts and ask questions that are top of mind.

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.
