The Substance Use Funders Collaborative is the only funder group focused on developing and investing in a full and equitable community based non-punitive substance use system of care including prevention, treatment, recovery, and harm reduction.

After consultation with a small group of peer funders, Alexa Eggleston from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation developed a partnership with Dr. Kima Taylor, a public health and addiction expert to explore the opportunity for creating a SUD funders group.

Together, in the summer of 2017, they convened a small group of these new philanthropic leaders to share learning, discuss challenges and opportunities, and identify commonalities across funding strategies. Thus, with initial funding from the Hilton Foundation, began the SUD Funders Collaborative.

The Substance Use Funders Collaborative is not a grantmaking body.
