The Center for Effective Philanthropy (CEP) works with funders all over the world, and more than 30 funders headquartered in Europe, and 43 global foundations have participated in the GPR to provide unique insights into their effectiveness.
Grantee and Applicant Perception Report
Helping Funders All Over the World Learn From Feedback
CEP’s Grantee Perception Report (GPR), a research-based assessment that provides foundations with a chance to learn and improve by listening to and benchmarking candid feedback from their grantees, has now been used by more than 300 funders, including more than 30 funders headquartered in Europe and 43 global foundations.
Through an easy-to-implement, confidential online survey, the GPR allows funders to learn from actionable insights based on truly candid and reliable grantee feedback.
The GPR is the only grantee survey that puts your results in a comparative context with your peers. That’s the CEP difference.
Survey themes include:
Learn from Declined Applicants
For funders with open or competitive application processes, using the GPR in tandem with CEP’s Applicant Perception Report (APR) allows you to gain a comprehensive understanding of grantees’ and declined applicants’ experiences with your interactions and processes.
LEARN FROM OTHER STAKEHOLDERS
CEP’s Staff Perception Report (SPR), the only staff survey designed specifically for foundations, helps funders gather candid feedback from their teams on topics crucial to their impact. CEP’s Donor Perception Report (DPR) helps funders understand what their donors value and what drives their giving decisions. Through our Advisory Services, funders work with CEP on tailored engagements designed address current challenges, take the next steps to make change following an assessment, and answer pressing questions about their work.
