2017 Grantee Perception Report

April 2018

Measuring effectiveness through partner feedback.

In our efforts to improve the lives of disadvantaged and vulnerable people throughout the world, we solicit feedback from our grantees as one measure of our effectiveness. In September 2017, we engaged the Center for Effective Philanthropy to survey our grantees and prepare a Grantee Perception Reportâ„¢ (GPR). The GPR is a confidential survey that provides a comprehensive assessment of grantee perceptions of our performance, and compares the data to data from other foundations whose grantees were also surveyed. This process is important to us because as it enables grantees to give an unfiltered assessment of their interactions with the Foundation, helping us guide improvements to our grantmaking practices as needed.
