Support Exponent Philanthropy

Exponent Philanthropy is a 501(c)(3) membership organization (EIN #65-0617866) that empowers philanthropists to leverage their resources and amplify their impact. Our founders established a flat and modest dues structure because they wanted to help as many funders as possible and did not want membership dues to be a barrier to access to important information and connecting with our community.  However, membership dues cover less than 50% of our operating expenses. We rely on the generous support of foundations and corporate partners to maintain and expand our high quality programs and resources. The ultimate beneficiaries of our work are the thousands of non-profits and communities that funders with few or no staff support.

  • Commit to a voluntary dues increase

    Many members want to support us with a grant above dues but are limited in some way by their foundation’s grantmaking guidelines or bylaws. If a foundation’s funding is restricted to a specific geography, for example, a voluntary dues increase is an excellent way to support our mission financially. For more information or to commit to a voluntary dues increase, please contact our membership department at 202-580-6560.
