Glenmede, a privately-held and independent investment and wealth management firm with over $40 billion in assets under management (AUM), is pleased to announce Nina L. Cohen, Director of Endowment & Foundation Advisory, has been appointed to the Exponent Philanthropy Board of Directors.

As Director of Endowment & Foundation Advisory at Glenmede, Cohen provides advisory and administrative services to foundations, endowments and other not-for-profit organizations.

“We are thrilled Nina has joined our board of directors as she brings experience and expertise from her many years as a foundation trustee, advisor and nonprofit leader,” said Henry Berman, CEO of Exponent Philanthropy. “She is a wonderful combination of head and heart – balancing the two for the good of the organization. For years she has been a trusted advisor to many of our members as a teacher in our seminars as well as providing me personally with wise counsel. Joining our board ‘formalizes’ her many years of service.” 

Cohen currently serves as a board member of the Philanthropy Network Greater Philadelphia and is on the Board of Advisors of Samost Jewish Family & Children’s Services and the Jewish Community Foundation of Southern New Jersey, where she previously served as president.
