Join us for an upcoming educational program to meet other funders who give with few or no staff and learn from skilled facilitators who understand your unique style of philanthropy.

Instead of an in-person conference, local programs, and day-long seminars this year, Exponent Philanthropy is bringing you content in many virtual formats in our continued effort to support you with resources and connections.

The Annual Conference attracts 1,000 philanthropy professionals and more than 45 philanthropic services companies and organizations for 2.5 days of educational programming and networking.

When we opened registration for the 2020 Annual Conference, none of us could have imagined how this year would unfold. After much deliberation and conversation, we have decided that our annual conference in October will not be held in Anaheim as scheduled due to the COVID-19 worldwide pandemic.
