Grantmakers Predict Impact of Politics on Philanthropy

A new survey by Exponent Philanthropy shows the vast majority of its members (82%) expect the institution of philanthropy to play a more important role in society as a result of recent changes in Washington, DC. Issued in late March to Exponent Philanthropy’s members—foundations with few or no staff, philanthropic families, and individual donors—the informal “Pulse Check” survey looked at how changes today in politics may impact philanthropic behavior in the year ahead, both in terms of giving practices and investments. Results were tabulated from 324 respondents representing a 17% response rate.
