Funders Concerned About AIDS Philanthropy Summit 2018

The annual Funders Concerned About AIDS (FCAA) Philanthropy Summit will be held November 5 and 6, 2018, in Washington D.C.

Founded in 1987, when the government’s response to the AIDS epidemic was ridiculously inadequate, concerned grant-makers dedicated to bringing philanthropic attention to the AIDS crisis founded FCAA. Under the leadership of Executive Director Michael Seltze, and Board Chair Joyce Bove, the organization produced its first set of guidelines for AIDS grant-making as well as public policy and advocacy.

Each year, FCAA gathers funders and grant-makers together to network to increase the amount of philanthropic resources dedicated to the HIV/AIDS effort and to strengthen networks of funders working in AIDS research and care as well as other areas of health, human rights and social justice.

This year’s FCAA Summit features the theme “Catalyzing Communities.” Their goal is to help identify new tools and opportunities to increase investment in community-based approaches.

The Summit will be held at the FHI 360 Conference Center in Washington, D.C.

Registration for the November 5-6 event opened in August 2018.
