The Center for Effective Philanthropy (CEP) seeks to influence foundations and major donors to be more effective.
Foundations and major donors can take on pressing challenges that have defied government and business solutions. But being effective in this work is uniquely challenging.
To make every dollar count, foundations and major donors need to continually assess their performance, learn from data and exemplars, and adapt their practices in ways that are consistent with effectiveness.
That’s where CEP comes in.
CEP provides data, feedback, programs, and insights to help individual and institutional donors improve their effectiveness. We do this work because we believe effective donors, working collaboratively and thoughtfully, can profoundly contribute to creating a better and more just world.
