Chronicle of Philanthropy Forum: Time of Tumult


Exponent Partners is proud to sponsor the next Chronicle of Philanthropy Virtual Forum, One on One: A Giving Pledge Donor Calls for Change in a Time of Tumult, featuring Melanie Lundquist and her husband, Richard, who generously support K-12 public schools and biomedical research. The Lundquists have appeared four times on the Philanthropy 50 list of top donors in America. Now as the nation faces an economic and health crisis and calls for racial justice grow louder, they are urging other philanthropists to do more.

Join the Chronicle of Philanthropy on Wednesday, September 30th at 11 AM PT / 2 PM ET for a one-on-one conversation with Melanie Lundquist to hear her explain why she:

  • Supports public schools and good healthcare
  • Urges fellow big donors to support solutions that can be replicated across the nation and around the globe
  • Believes philanthropy must advance equity by focusing on the ways that society fails those who are denied basic human rights
  • Pursues advocacy and wants other donors to know that dollars alone do not accomplish what is needed today.

This conversation will help nonprofit leaders understand how to encourage other donors to give generously and wisely – and offers an opportunity for donors, board members and others to deepen their understanding of how they can respond effectively in these tumultuous days.

Register for the forum and use the complimentary code EXPONENT100 for discounted registration.
