Executive Director, Eisner Foundation
Few leaders in the country have seen the non-profit sector from as many vantage points as Trent Stamp has in his career. He started as a direct service provider working in one of America's most disadvantaged rural communities and has since moved to be a senior executive for one of America's largest and most influential charities, the founder and leader of his own national non-profit, a board member several times over, a nationally-recognized charity watchdog, a commentator and expert analyst on charity issues for network television news shows, a prolific writer and well-known blogger, and to his current position as the chief executive of one of Southern California's highest-profile and most-influential foundations.
Trent Stamp has been executive director of The Eisner Foundation since 2008. In that role, he is responsible for all aspects of the foundation's management, including strategy, execution, operations, evaluation, marketing, and the awarding of The Eisner Prize. Trent represents the organization externally to various community audiences, regularly publishes editorials and articles about issues affecting the non-profit sector, and is a frequent speaker and presenter at national conferences and seminars on philanthropic issues.
In addition to his Eisner Foundation duties, Trent currently provides leadership to the Southern California philanthropic community by being a member of the Board of Advisors for The Center on Philanthropy & Public Policy at USC and by serving on the Board of Directors of Southern California Grantmakers. He also works as a consultant to the Committee on the Arts at The Aspen Institute.
Trent lives in Hermosa Beach, California with his wife and two children. In his spare time, he is a volunteer coach for five youth sports teams and serves on the Board of the Hermosa Beach Little League.

Managing Partner, Seton & Associates, PLC
Business Lawyers For Charities
Kent E. Seton, Esq., an entrepreneur at heart, started his law career simultaneously with the launch of a separate online venture that quickly grew into one of the largest nationwide providers preparing the paperwork for creating 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations. At its height, this online company was forming over 200 501(c)(3) organizations per month. At the same time, he also steadily grew his transactional law practice in the Beverly Hills and outlying areas, and has become one of the foremost attorneys representing charities. He also lends his experience to social entrepreneurs by advising them as they form and structure new businesses. Kent rejects the idea of "one size fits all" and works with each client separately to develop legal solutions tailored to meet their specific legal and business needs. In addition to speaking regularly on a variety of topics, he also spearheaded a complimentary periodic event featuring some of the most advanced thinkers in the nonprofit sector for the benefit of sharing resources, information and networking in the Los Angeles Area. He also enjoys lecturing on subjects including "social entrepreneurism," collaborations, mergers and acquisition s in the nonprofit sector, strategies for donors and fundraisers, and "hybrid" entities.
