Grantee Perception Reports
While the grantor/grantee relationship can be complex, both staff and trustees are guided by a deep understanding that our work as funders has little or no meaning without the incredible efforts of the nonprofit organizations to which we provide resources.
In 2007 and 2012 the Fund engaged the Center for Effective Philanthropy (CEP), an independent nonprofit organization, to conduct an anonymous survey of our grantees. CEP provides comparative data from thousands of grantees from over 120 foundations.
