Donor Perception Report
The Only Comparative Donor Survey for Community Foundations
Partner with CEP to better understand what your donors value and how that drives their giving decisions. Through a confidential survey with questions grounded in research, the DPR is the only survey that puts your results in a comparative context with peer community foundations. That’s the CEP difference.
Survey themes include:
DPR IN ACTION
The Sacramento Region Community Foundation discusses how they’ve strengthened their work with donors using the DPR over time.
San Francisco Foundation shares how they’re using donor, grantee, and applicant feedback to strengthen their effectiveness.
The Denver Foundation reports back what they learned from their donors.
The Community Foundation of Sarasota County talks about what they learned from their first DPR.
