Organizational Profile

Exponent Philanthropy


There is a powerful force in philanthropy today. It’s practiced by donors, trustees, and philanthropic professionals who choose to give big by staying small, working with few or no staff to make the most of their resources. Their style of giving is unique—it’s lean, agile, responsive, passionate, personal. And it’s achieving enormous, outsized impact in communities across the country and around the world.

Exponent Philanthropy amplifies and celebrates the vital work of this diverse group of givers. We’re a vibrant membership organization, and we provide resources and valuable connections to help funders make the most of the minutes they have and the dollars they give.


A better world through informed, passionate philanthropy.


We empower philanthropists to leverage their resources and amplify their impact.
