2020 Annual Conference

As of now, we anticipate our annual conference in October in Anaheim to go on as scheduled.
We are hoping that the magnitude and direction of the COVID-19 situation will be much clearer in the next few months, which will allow us to make principled decisions to either proceed with the conference as planned or make necessary changes to timing. If we find it necessary to cancel the conference, we will issue full refunds for all registrations without charging any processing fees.

The Exponent Philanthropy Annual Conference offers three days of provocative plenary sessions, interactive learning models, inspirational site visits, and shared knowledge from leaders in grantmaking.

Our reputation for providing timely and relevant educational content for staff, donors, and trustees at all levels of experience and serving all types of foundations is the result of years of working with and listening to lean funders from across the country and sector.

As a member-led organization, we understand what it means to give up time and money to participate in the Annual Conference and we are committed to ensuring that you get the most out of the critical resources you invest in our event.
