"As a funder, you have the ability to convene people, to bring people together, to be a catalyst for change." - Henry L. Berman
In this episode of the Champions for Social Good Podcast, Jamie Serino speaks with Henry L. Berman (@Berman_Henry), CEO of Exponent Philanthropy (@exponentphil). Henry provides an in-depth perspective on the complexity of funder-nonprofit relationships taken from his unique perch in the space working directly with philanthropists, and he emphasizes the importance of tracking against pre-defined outcomes. Henry also suggests how funders can act as catalysts for change beyond grantmaking, such as by leveraging strategic relationships, holding local convenings and empowering other stakeholders to take action together. The topic of building strong foundation infrastructure is also discussed, and Henry offers advice for foundations on how to thrive amidst the new political environment.
