The Funders Alliance is a collaborative group of large regional funding agencies that have joined together to increase communication, collaboration, and coordination among regional funders.
The primary goals of the Alliance include:
The role of the Capacity Building workgroup is to discuss, research and identify ways to strengthen organizations in the region to positively impact quality of life through the use of proven methodologies, evidenced based programs and best practices in board and organizational development.
Critical to the Future of Our State
The role of the Outreach & Advocacy workgroup is to identify and establish connection with private philanthropy and government funders attract foundation and state/federal funding to the region. The Funders Alliance is a central resource to others interested in learning about, navigating and funding within the Inland Empire.
Funders Alliance membership is intended to include high level administrators (CEO, ED, etc.) or key regional representatives who possess decision making authority (subject to approval of their governing body) and whose primary, if not sole activity, involves the provision of substantial funding ($100,000+ annually) for services provided by community based and/or public agencies in Riverside and/or San Bernardino Counties.
The Funders Alliance’s outreach and advocacy campaign reaches out to public and private funders outside of the region so that they understand the challenges and opportunities that exist in Inland Southern California. We are communicating three key messages:
