Exponent Philanthropy, the country’s largest philanthropy association, is pleased to announce three honorees of its 2016 Outsized Impact Award. Created as part of the group’s 20th anniversary celebration, the award recognizes individuals and organizations whose contributions and service have achieved far-reaching effects—an outsized impact—on the association and the community it serves.
“All honorees have played an instrumental role in the development and success of this organization,” said Henry L. Berman, chief executive officer, Exponent Philanthropy. “Our organization is indebted to them for their tremendous foresight, dedication, and leadership, and the outsized impact they have created.”
The recipients of the 2016 Outsized Impact Award, as chosen by the Exponent Philanthropy board of directors, are:
- Alan Egly, Doris & Victor Day Foundation
- Winsome and Michael McIntosh, The McIntosh Foundation
- William S. (Bill) White, Charles Stewart Mott Foundation
The late Alan Egly served as executive director of the Doris & Victor Day Foundation from 1987 until his retirement in 2014. He served as the first chair of the association’s board of directors and was among its most vocal advocates. He is remembered for his strong ethics, principles, and priorities. Alan passed away in January 2016.
Winsome McIntosh has served on the board of The McIntosh Foundation since 1972. She and her late husband Michael were instrumental in the creation of the group that later became the Association of Small Foundations, as Exponent Philanthropy was previously known. They provided key early funding for the organization and have remained supporters and advisors for the past 20 years. Michael passed away in May 2015.
Bill White is chairman and chief executive officer of the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, which has provided constant support throughout Exponent Philanthropy’s 20-year history. Bill, who has been with the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation since 1969, was instrumental to Exponent Philanthropy’s startup and professionalization. Throughout his career, he has led the way in developing and strengthening community foundations across the country and around the world.
The 2016 Outsized Impact Awards will be presented today at Exponent Philanthropy’s 2016 National Conference.
