    Held in conjunction with the National Conference on Ending Homelessness, the Institute will share how funders are uniquely positioned to help prevent homelessness and discuss how funders are thinking about prevention and how working intentionally with other systems is critical for success.


    As funders increasingly turn their attention to preventing homelessness, we must also consider what it means to be both intentional and intersectional.

    Join us at the 2018 Funders Institute, held in conjunction with the National Conference on Ending Homelessness, to learn how funders are uniquely positioned to help prevent homelessness. We will discuss how funders are thinking about prevention and how working intentionally with other systems is critical for success. Together, we’ll explore the intersections of homelessness and health, workforce development, criminal justice, and more.

    Ending homelessness is too important for us to continue working alone. It is more important than ever for us to start working together, across silos, to strengthen other systems and prevent homelessness before it starts. Join this conversation to learn how other systems are thinking about housing stability and how your work is already helping to prevent homelessness. Throughout the day you will also hear from funders what they’re doing to prevent homelessness in their communities and specific ideas you can take home.

    Don’t forget, this year’s Funders Institute will continue throughout the conference with more opportunities to connect with your funder peers and learn about what’s happening across the country.

    A grantmakers’ application and reporting practices are often the first – and sometimes the only – thing that a grantseeker or grantee organization experiences as evidence of what the grantmaker cares about. When your application, monitoring, and reporting practices are burdensome, redundant, or confusing, they waste time and money for your grantseekers and your staff – and they probably don’t support your strategy or values as well as they could.

    This webinar offers an introduction to Project Streamline and the practical changes that grantmakers can make to their own practice to help improve their own efficiency and reduce the burden on grantseekers and grantees.

    Join this practical exploration of streamlining principles and practices. We will review Project Streamline’s research on what matters most to grantmakers and grantseekers and discuss specific strategies and practical ideas for overcoming common barriers, resistance to change, and making streamlining changes in your own organization.

    Foundations rely heavily on the energy, talents, and skills of their board members, as individuals and as a group. This one-day seminar is designed especially for trustees and board members of leanly staffed foundations looking to increase their impact, hone their leadership skills, and more effectively manage change as they advance the missions of their organizations.

    Through interactive presentations, facilitated discussions, and networking opportunities, participants will come away with tools, inspiration, and connections to elevate their own and their foundation’s performance.

    This seminar is being held in conjunction with Exponent Philanthropy's 2018 National Conference.
