The 2023 Foundation Operations and Management Report is out now. Based on insights gleaned from Exponent Philanthropy’s annual survey of leanly staffed foundations, this presentation highlights how Exponent Philanthropy’s community of lean funders practices their philanthropy and will review trends in equity practices, boards and governance, grantmaking practices, and much more. 

Join Exponent Philanthropy for this webinar to dive into the report and share this year’s findings. You’ll also hear from two members how they use the information in the report to inform their work. Discover the broader world of foundations and see where your foundation fits in. 



  • Brendan McCormick, Manager of Research and Education, Exponent Philanthropy
  • Lynn Bentaleb, Executive Director, Nancy Buck Ransom Foundation
