Exponent Philanthropy, the largest U.S. association of funders at 2,200 members, provides educational programs and connections to help members maximize their giving dollars. Exponent believes that “relationships come first” and “learning is a lifelong journey.” (See their core values here.) To that end, they invested a year of creativity and inquiry into what its members have learned through giving, getting, failing, and regrouping. We were honored to participate in the conversation.


We look forward to seeing many of our industry friends at the biannual Exponent 2016 National Conference in Chicago this September! We’ll be hosting a “dine-around” on how to build stories (like our MY JOB book project) to connect people to your mission and raise funds for your cause.
