Special Announcements

Funders Together Represents Philanthropy at 
True Colors Fund's Forty to None Summit
Funders Together is proud to have been a partner and sponsor of the Forty to None Summit in NYC this week, hosted by the True Colors Fund. This cross-sector convening brought together philanthropy, government, service providers, and youth to talk about solutions to LGBTQ youth homelessness. Read Anne's blog highlighting her TED Talk at the summit and check our Facebook and Twitter feeds for photos and highlights. Above: Anne Miskey and Alexis Perlmutter participate in the summit as allies and connectors.

How Can Funders End Youth Homelessness?
In early 2015, Funders Together will launch Foundations for Youth Success, a national philanthropic initiative focused on the funders' role in ending youth homelessness.  The cornerstone of this initiative will be a community of practice, through which funders will share and build knowledge about best practices and effective solutions for our young people. 

Help Us Shape Foundations for Youth Success (FYS)
November 5th, 9:30 - 4 p.m. | Washington D.C.
