FCAA Summit – Q&A

REGISTRATION NOW OPEN!

If you do not find an answer to your questions about the Summit please contact FCAA’s Director of Operations Sarah Hamilton at [email protected].

What is the FCAA Summit?

Since 2009, the annual FCAA Summit (formerly known as the AIDS Philanthropy Summit) has served as an important space for networking and community building.

Each year FCAA convenes close to 200 HIV-informed 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-19 responses with racial justice efforts in the U.S.
When will the 2021 FCAA Summit take place?

Due to ongoing uncertainty around the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 FCAA Summit will now be an all-virtual conference from November 8th – 9th, 2021.

What will the virtual agenda look like?

FCAA is crafting an agenda with a mix of “live” panel discussions and pre-recorded content available for viewing by Summit attendees. We will also offer space and tools to encourage unstructured networking among attendees. FCAA will be convening the Summit using the Hopin Virtual Platform.
