A Funder Conversation: The Unique Powers of Small Funders to Shape Policy

Hosted by Exponent Philanthropy in partnership with the Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation, and with the support of the Annie E. Casey Foundation.

Small-staffed foundations and donors not only can influence public policy, but have the unique position and abilities to do so—from convening, to commissioning nonpartisan data, to funding nonprofit and community coalitions.

Join us for a breakfast program to explore the different roles small funders can play—especially at the local and state level. Share experience and ideas with peers for getting started and getting involved, and hear how an Atlanta-area funder was able to make a significant difference in the policy arena. You are sure to come away with ideas, strategies, and inspiration.

This program is specifically designed for foundations with few or no staff and individual donors.

There is no fee to participate thanks to the support of The Annie E. Casey Foundation. Space is limited.
