About the LEG Partnership

Northern California Grantmakers and Exponent Philanthropy (formerly known as the Association of Small Foundations) have partnered to host San Francisco Bay Area Local Engagement Group (LEG) meetings to provide additional learning opportunities for members of both organizations. The local LEG began in 2013 as a pilot along with 5 other regional associations of grantmakers and ASF to explore effective and sustainable ways to support learning for small staff organizations. NCG will continue to offer its other programming for its Family Philanthropy Exchange members in addition to the LEG meetings. Programming for each LEG will be informed by local participants' interests and may include guest speakers, panel discussions, roundtable peer dialogues and networking events on a variety of topics relevant to small-staff philanthropists.
