About this event
The annual Funders Institute from Funders Together to End Homelessness is going virtual in 2020! To continue practicing safe physical distancing, participants will convene virtually over the course of three days in August to learn, connect and act. 2020 has been a long, challenging year and Funders Institute is dedicated time in our movement for philanthropy to come together, solidify partnerships and support each other.
This year, Funders Together will hold virtual conversations and engage in principled struggle to push for racial justice in our work to end homelessness. Attributed to N’tanya Lee, the concept of principled struggle is that struggle is a condition for change and liberation and that to disagree and grapple with each other is an inevitable and necessary part of racial equity work.
Conversations will focus on issues including COVID-19 and homelessness, the 2020 election and possible change in Administration, and how to use our voice and dollars to seek racial and housing justice.
Each day, programming will mix formal presentation and funder-driven conversations. Participants can register for all three sessions together or pick and choose which sessions they want to attend by registering for the sessions individually.
