About

Our Mission

Funders Together to End Homelessness will mobilize its members to utilize the voice, influence, and expertise of philanthropy in ways that will advance lasting solutions to ending homelessness, including addressing its underlying causes like structural and racial inequities, and helping create policies and systems that center people with lived expertise.

About Funders Together

Funders Together to End Homelessness is the only philanthropic membership organization devoted to ending homelessness in the United States. We serve as a vehicle for members to be part of a broader movement and bring greater financial and intellectual resources to end homelessness and move toward housing justice, and we support the field of philanthropy by providing critical learning and networking opportunities around best practices and innovation to ensure investments are maximized. 

Funders Together is an entirely remote organization, and all staff work from home unless traveling for work. Due to COVID-19, our in-person events in 2021 have been shifted to a virtual format, and we do not anticipate any required travel in 2021 on behalf of the organization.

This position reports to the Director of Membership and Programs and provides administrative support on programming, membership, and resource development activities. This position also supports the CEO by maintaining her calendar and assisting her in supporting the board of directors. This position is full time (40 hours per week) and remote. When it is safe to travel after the COVID-19 pandemic, this position requires domestic travel 6-8 times a year. We encourage people with lived experience of homelessness and/or housing instability to apply.
