Exiting Responsibly: Best Donor Practices in Ending Field Support

Exiting fields is a common practice in the philanthropic sector. It is often spurred by foundations’ continuous quest for innovation, new leadership, or a decline in assets. However, this practice is often performed with little advance notice, unclear rationales, and no consistent best practices. Exiting a field responsibly is essential to achieving the compelling and far-reaching goals that foundations set for themselves, so how can they help strengthen and sustain fields when their support ends? Consultant Janice Petrovich discussed effective practices in this important area.
