Since 2009, the annual FCAA Summit (formerly known as the AIDS Philanthropy Summit) has served as an important space for networking and community building. Each year FCAA convenes close to 200 HIV-informed funders and experts to network and strategize about best grantmaking practices related to HIV and interlinked areas of public health, human rights, and social justice.
The pandemic has had far greater impact on our work than just prohibiting us from all being in the same place at the same time.
- It has laid bare the consequences of siloed philanthropy.
- It has highlighted the imperative to accelerate intersectional, multi-level work.
- It has brought into sharp focus the need to integrate the HIV and COVID responses with racial justice efforts in the U.S.
At this year’s summit we will explore what it means to be an HIV-informed funder in a world still grappling with the impact of COVID-19. We will address:
- The goals and priorities of the new U.S. Administration
- How our work will be impacted by the recently adopted UNAIDS declaration and the expanded mandate of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and MalariaHow we can shift power to effectively center community leadership within the philanthropic response to HIV
FCAA is a philanthropy-serving organization founded in 1987 to take bold actions and push philanthropy to respond to an unprecedented global pandemic. All these years later, we find ourselves needing to be bolder than ever to battle not just one disease, but the convergence of HIV/AIDS, COVID-19, and systemic inequality. We hope you, too, will be bold. Take the first step; join us at this year’s Summit.
