Foundation Transitions Virtual Seminar Module 1: Preparing for Transitions

Host Organization: Exponent Philanthropy


Transition isn’t always seamless; in fact it’s often messy. When planning for the future feels overwhelming, it’s good to know that most foundations experience unplanned changes which can affect everyone from staff, board, and committee members to trustees, beneficiaries, and grantees. Being proactive and prepared is integral to effectively managing leadership transitions. Where possible, these changes must be choreographed to avoid undue risks to the organization’s mission and long-term goals.Thinking through how you want to manage the transition is the first step in navigating change in a more intentional way. 

By the end of this module participants will be able to:  

  • Recognize different transitions a foundation will experience.  
  • Identify how to create a plan for specific transition points to limit the organization’s vulnerability in times of change
