About Us

Untraditional Philanthropy works with individuals, families, foundations—and their advisors—to increase philanthropic impact by connecting donors directly with leading social entrepreneurs. To this end, we are the only advisory in the world bringing together a consortium of 45+ impact leaders and subject area experts offering one-on-one guidance to high-capacity donors interested in doing things a bit differently. These experts include MacArthur Genius Award winners, global leaders in their fields, and social entrepreneurs whose work has garnered $10M+ gifts from MacKenzie Scott and others. We celebrate that more than 85% of our experts are women, people of color, and/or members of the LGBTQ+ community.

Chandler Arnold founded Untraditional Philanthropy after spending 25 years leading successful social change efforts at the local, national, and global levels. He’s also developed award-winning social impact initiatives with some of the country’s strongest brands and most generous families.
