2023 Grantee Perception Report

In the Spring of 2023, we engaged the Center for Effective Philanthropy to conduct the field-leading Grantee Perception Report (GPR) for comprehensive feedback from our grantee partners. This is the second time we’ve fielded the GPR, offering insight into progress since our first survey in 2020. Results benchmark our performance relative to all foundations with GPR data as well as a sample of a dozen foundations most similar to ours. As we share these findings with you (access the key findings and full report at the end of this email), we want you to know that we are committed to listening and learning from your feedback as we strive to be more than a funder, but a thought partner, amplifier, and connector. We are grateful to our many partners who took the time to respond to the survey.
