Arlington, VA – Steve Gunderson, president and CEO of the Council on Foundations, will facilitate a panel of funders exploring new opportunities for philanthropy to leverage non-HIV/AIDS federal resources to ensure that people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) in the United States have access to primary and HIV-specific medical care. The panel is part of a May 16 briefing, “Access=Health: New Opportunities for Grantmakers with the Social Innovation Fund,” hosted by Funders Concerned About Aids and AIDS United, in partnership with the Council on Foundations.
A program of the Corporation for National and Community Service, the Social Innovation Fund joins public and philanthropic funds to find and build the best community-based organizations with evidence of success. Recognizing the importance of partnerships, the Council on Foundations’ Public-Philanthropic Partnership Initiative brings together government and philanthropy to address the most chronic and severe issues facing our nation. The goal of the initiative is to leverage the work of each sector and broaden the reach of philanthropy’s intellectual and financial capital, as well as the scope of its successes, to achieve positive societal change.
