Funders Concerned About AIDS (FCAA) will convene its 2019 AIDS Philanthropy Summit on October 28-29, 2019, at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. The FCAA Summit is the premier national conference for grantmakers interested in HIV/AIDS and social justice-related philanthropy, attracting approximately 200 foundation leaders and experts in the field annually.

This year’s theme is: “Keeping AIDS in the Headlines: Maintaining Focus, Expanding Priorities”

At this year’s summit FCAA will explore what it means to be an AIDS funder in 2019, discussing topics such as:

  • What is the way forward, AIDS exceptionalism or AIDS mainstreaming?
  • How and why do funders center HIV within other priorities?
  • How do funders measure success when funding HIV work that intersects with other drivers?

This year’s theme—and our new venue—also presents an opportunity to look at AIDS funding through a unique lens. Media—in all its forms—has the power both to reach the communities most impacted by HIV, as well as to inform and amplify our work. It is also a platform that can be used to ensure that HIV/AIDS stays top-of-mind, even as funding and programming becomes increasingly integrated.

FCAA’s media focus will explore the role of funders in:

  • Ensuring AIDS remains in the headlines;
  • Using the media to effectively address HIV care, prevention, and treatment; and
  • Successfully countering media inaccuracies about HIV/AIDS.
