Webinar: Ramping Up for High-Impact Philanthropy

Please join Exponent Philanthropy and Foundant for this complimentary webinar.

This webinar is for seasoned donors, foundation trustees, DAF holders, and staff who are taking steps to significantly ramp up the impact of their giving. No longer content with just “making good grants” or “doing good things for the community,” you’ve taken a fresh look at your goals, strategies, and outcomes and decided that you could do things differently to achieve even more. Implementing strategies to achieve these aims, however, typically involves a winding path full of experiments, iterations, and complications.

During this webinar, we will outline:

  • Common obstacles along this journey
  • Effective strategies to overcome them
  • Case examples to illustrate these approaches in action.
