ABOUT THE FUNDERS COLLABORATIVE

The Home For Good Funders Collaborative has been a pivotal philanthropic force in our community’s progress to secure sufficient resources to end homelessness. This initiative of more than 30 public and private funders has been strategic and early supporters of systems change and testing solutions to bring to scale. Collectively, the members of the Funders Collaborative have committed over $33.5M in philanthropic investment, which has leveraged over $1BM in public resources. By pairing catalytic, innovative funding available through private philanthropy with more restrictive, yet larger and more sustainable public resources, our community has been able to unlock essential housing opportunities for those who need them most.
