  • Collaborative Funding: Putting Your Money Where Your Mouth Is
    efforts Over the past couple years the LA Homeless Funders Group a regional affiliate of Funders Together has been learning about and discussing the concept of pooling our philanthropic funds to incentivize aligned funding from our public sector partners Although this type of alignment has happened on an ad hoc basis grantees remained frustrated with having to go separately to dozens of funders to allow them to do the important work of helping move people from the streets into supportive housing Moreover for those of us seeking quantifiable declines in the numbers of persons on our streets and in shelters there was no common method for coordinating our resources to do so In 2010 a new opportunity emerged with the release of the Home For Good Action Plan which quickly garnered broad support to end chronic and veteran homelessness in Los Angeles County by 2016 Currently at more than 100 signatories the plan has for the first time given the nonprofit public business and philanthropic sectors in Los Angeles a common approach to addressing homelessness to rally around For years there had been talk among other public and private funders about creating a coordinated funding mechanism but learning from other Funders Together members such as the Bill Melinda Gates Foundation we came to the conclusion that it might take philanthropy to catalyze such an effort In August 2010 the board of the Conrad N Hilton Foundation approved a 1 million challenge grant to seed the Funders Collaborative As evidenced in the release of the RFP the response by philanthropy and our public funding partners has been rapid and overwhelmingly positive installment loans lesson United Way of Greater Los Angeles which issued the Home For Good Action Plan in partnership with the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce has very ably led the process of developing the RFP and is managing the pooled philanthropic funds An engaged workgroup of public and private funders including those who are contributing funds through the RFP but also others who have not contributed this year but have expressed interest in possibly doing so in the future have worked diligently to develop the values and funding priorities in the RFP We look forward to announcing funding decisions in July and will keep partners across the country informed of our challenges progress and lessons learned through Funders Together and other venues We do not have any illusions that the Funders Collaborative on its own will solve the vexing problem of homelessness in Los Angeles and it hasn t emerged in a vacuum Rather it is the result of years of work by committed stakeholders across public philanthropic and provider sectors They have made progress but needed a little push to do the difficult work of pooling and aligning funding toward a common goal That is a perfect role for philanthropy and we believe a bet worth making http homeforgoodla com cache cash advance loan same day html Leave a Reply Cancel reply Send Us Message Full Name
