Looking Back, Forging Ahead: 25 Years of FCAAJan 1, 2012
This year marks the 25th anniversary of Funders Concerned About AIDS' work to mobilize philanthropic leadership, ideas, and resources in the fight against AIDS. We are using this occasion to remember, recommit and reinvigorate. We remember the lives lost to the disease, and the catalytic influence of the philanthropic sector in achieving successes to date. We recommit to our work of convening the sector, providing timely and relevant information to enlighten your grantmaking, and providing the important time and space for funder networking and exploration of collaborative approaches to current challenges. Finally, we will use this quarter century mark to reinvigorate the philanthropic sector -- seeking to re-engage those funders who've moved on from AIDS, as well as reaching out to those working in adjacent areas of health, human rights, and social justice to highlight the important intersections in our work.
