Grantee and Applicant
Perception Reports


THE MOST WIDELY USED GRANTEE SURVEY

Grantees are a crucial link between funders and their intended impact. But given the power dynamic that is inherent in the funder-grantee relationship, seeking honest, actionable feedback is far from easy.

The Grantee Perception Report® (GPR) provides funders with candid feedback and insights based on responses to an easy-to-implement online grantee survey. The GPR is the most widely used grantee survey, and it’s driven by extensive research and analysis. Hundreds of funders have used the GPR and its comparative data to make the best choices about how to use their resources to create impact.

Insights gained through the GPR can also be complemented by the Applicant Perception Report (APR), a separate, shorter survey that gathers feedback from a funder’s declined applicants. Many foundations use these assessments together to identify what’s working – and what could be improved – in areas ranging from operational processes to communications.
