Henry Berman, EdD
Henry recently retired as CEO of Exponent Philanthropy, a vibrant membership organization that amplifies and celebrates the vital work of philanthropists who give big while keeping their operations lean. Recognizing that funders were increasingly using a variety of giving vehicles, in 2014 Henry led the organization through a strategic rebrand from the Association of Small Foundations.
Before joining Exponent Philanthropy, Henry had a long career in educational media and technology. He is a founding board member of the Museum of Broadcast Technology and recently completed service on the boards of the National Council of Nonprofits and The Center for Disaster Philanthropy.
Currently he is concentrating on using his media and photographic skills helping nonprofits tell their stories as well as sunsetting a private foundation where he has served as co-trustee since its inception 18 years ago.
Henry earned a bachelor’s degree in communications from Ithaca College, a master’s and doctorate in education from Boston University, and a certificate in business and management from the Harvard University Extension School, where he also taught classes in fundraising, development communications and philanthropy. He also taught at Columbia University and Boston University.
