Assessing Our Impact: 2017 Grantee Perception Report

How are we doing?

Every five years, the Walter & Elise Haas Fund commissions the Center for Effective Philanthropy (CEP) to survey our grantees so it can ask that question on our behalf. The results get compiled into a Grantee Perception Report.

Like many of our peers in philanthropy, we commission this work to assess our impact, our efficacy, and our processes. Said more simply, we want to hear how we’re doing so we can test the accuracy of our impressions and see where there’s room for us to improve.

We commissioned our first Grantee Perception Report in 2007, a second in 2012, and this — the third — in the fall of 2017. These reports and more are always available on our Transparency page.

We’d like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all those who contributed their input to this report and invite all of you to review the results. We’ve created a digest of the report’s top-line findings, set out a plan of actionable next steps, and have made the full report and an executive summary available for download.
