Funders Together to End Homelessness San Diego


Funders Together to End Homelessness San Diego (FTEHSD) is a regional collaboration of grantmakers that combine and align resources to actively end homelessness in the county.

FTEHSD's goal is to build a San Diego County network of funders who are committed to solving homelessness through leadership, education, and advocacy; strategic collaboration, alignment and focus of resources; and effective promotion and replication of evidence based practices in our community. It is part of the national Funders Together to End Homelessness network.

View FTEHSD's funding priorities for FY2016-17. Specific funding opportunities will be announced periodically through June 2017.


In October 2013, the Homelessness Working Group, a collaboration facilitated by San Diego Grantmakers, transitioned to become part of a growing group of public and private partners supporting activities to end homelessness in our region. They formed together as FTEH-SD, connected to the national Funders Together to End Homelessness network, and convened monthly with facilitation support from United Way of San Diego County. In 2016, when the United Way shifted its role from one of leading efforts to end homelessness to supporting such efforts, FTEH-SD once again secured facilitation support through SDG.

Taking a cue from their peers in San Francisco, nearly two dozen local media outlets declared Aug. 17, 2016 "San Diego Homeless Awareness Day," covering stories about our region's homeless and the efforts to resolve this human crisis. Here's one of those stories tht focuses on why private philanthropy is crucial to preventing and ending homelessness, and how a local funder collaboration, Funders Together to End Homelessness San Diego, is stepping up to fill this role and is encouraging others to join them.
