Funders Together thanks Tabitha Blackwell for her impactful tenure as our Director of Networks and Programs!
It is bittersweet for us to announce that Tabitha Blackwell, Funders Together Director of Networks and Programs, will be leaving on May 4, 2022. We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with her over the past four years and experience the joy and energy she brings into every room she enters.
Our organization, members, and collective work towards housing justice has been greatly impacted by her contributions. During her time at Funders Together, Tabitha has grown and supported our regional networks in the Bay Area, Los Angeles, San Diego, Baltimore, and Chicago, and formed and led the Funders Network for Youth Success and the Health System Funders for Housing Justice Network, as well as two of our communities of practice: Foundations for Employment and Housing and United Ways Partnering to End Homelessness. She has also been instrumental around the planning and implementation of our annual Funders Institute and Funders Forum.
While we will greatly miss her, we are incredibly excited for her as she joins Book Harvest Durham as their Executive Director, where she has served as a Board member for six years and board chair for the past four years. In her new role, she will expand upon her 15 years of experience in literacy, book access, and education and will continue locally to impact the lives of families and children.
Please join us in thanking Tabitha and wishing her the best!
