Philanthropy Lessons: Getting Out of the Office

June 22, 2016

Today Exponent Philanthropy releases the final video in its 9-part series:

Philanthropy Lessons: Getting Out of the Office
Getting out of the office is critical to understanding the context in which grantees are operating. The most effective site visits are not about grantees putting on a show but rather are opportunities for funders and grantees to learn from one another with mutual respect and transparency.


Philanthropy Lessons is a video series and campaign produced by Exponent Philanthropy, funded by the Fund for Shared Insight, and released in partnership with The Chronicle of Philanthropy.

The series shares wisdom from some of the industry’s most inspirational funders and their grantees about what they have learned throughout their philanthropic careers. They do so to help others be more effective and efficient in creating change and to inspire others to share their philanthropy lessons.

The videos cover themes that apply across geographies, issues areas, and funder size. The series will publish new videos monthly through June 2016.
