About the Funders Council

The Funders Council increases Terner Labs’ capacity to support bold innovations that address the roots of the nation’s housing affordability crisis.

The Funders Council brings together our most engaged partners who range from government agencies to private and nonprofit corporations to individuals. Membership is conferred based on annual donation amounts. This is a joint council for the Terner Labs and our aligned research center partner, the Terner Center.

The Funders Council meets 1-2 times per year to allow members to engage with Terner staff, get unique insights and offer feedback on current and upcoming work, and network with other members. Funders Council members also receive advance notice of select publications and receive recognition on our website and in our annual reports.
