Funders Concerned About AIDS (FCAA) will convene its 2021 FCAA Summit on November 8 – 9 in Washington, D.C. and Virtually

For the past decade, the FCAA Summit has provided a platform to inform, connect, and support philanthropy in response to the global pandemic of HIV and AIDS. Each year, FCAA brings together 200 HIV funders and experts to network and strategize about best grantmaking practices related to HIV and interlinked areas of public health, human rights, and social justice.

At the 2021 FCAA Summit we will explore what it means to be an HIV-informed funder in a world still grappling with the impact of COVID-19. We will address:

  • The goals and priorities of the new U.S. Administration
  • How our work will be impacted by the recently adopted UNAIDS declaration and the expanded mandate of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria
  • How we can shift power to effectively center community leadership within the philanthropic response to HIV
  • The need to integrate the HIV and COVID responses with racial justice efforts in the U.S.

Summit Safety

This new format will allow for limited in-person attendance, for those who are able to travel, as well as unlimited virtual attendance. FCAA will follow all guidance from the CDC, DC Health department and our meeting venue, the National Housing Center.  We will be providing regular updates as we receive new information on social distancing, mask guidelines and rules for large groups.  We recommend that all in-person registrants be fully vaccinated to protect themselves and others.
