Funders Together deeply values our more than 20 United Way members across the country. We recognize that United Ways play a crucial role in communities’ efforts to end and prevent homelessness, and uniquely combine direct service, advocacy, and convening with their capacity as grantmakers. We hold space for solidarity and accountability between United Way members to lean into their distinctiveness while focusing on their role as funders.
United Ways Partnering to End Homelessness meets via Zoom every other month, alternating our gatherings between peer-sharing discussions, topic-based discussions, or presentations from guest speakers. We are responsive to the needs of those who comprise the group, elevating pressing issues and connecting dots within disparate conversations in the movement to end homelessness.
Participation is limited to full members of Funders Together, but we recognize that United Ways’ budgets for membership associations is smaller than other grantmakers, so we provide United Ways a separate dues schedule. Learn more about membership.
