    Monthly COVID-19 Funder Call

    Wednesday, December 9, 2020 | 3pm ET / 2pm CT / 1pm MT / 12pm PT

    When the COVID-19 pandemic hit in early 2020, Funders Together to End Homelessness organized weekly funder calls for philanthropy to connect and share information about local responses to the impact of COVID-19 on people experiencing homelessness. Starting September 2020, these calls will move to being monthly calls on Wednesdays at 3pm ET / 2pm CT / 1pm MT / 12pm PT.


    Agenda for December 9

    During this call, you'll hear updates from three different place-based funders about their COVID-19 response for housing and homelessness and how they're thinking about the next phase of their work. Representing Liberty Hill and their focus on social justice in Los Angeles, Jessa McCormack will talk about Stay Housed LA and their work with community land trusts and local coalitions pushing for COVID relief. Junior Dillion will talk about the Wilson Foundation's housing work in Rochester, NY during the COVID-19 pandemic. And, sharing what's happening at the community level in San Diego to support people experiencing homelessness is Amy Denhart, Director of the Funders Together San Diego regional network.

    We hope these three perspectives will give participants new ideas and questions and brainstorm what philanthropy can do in the coming months.
