Foundation Transparency: What Nonprofits Want

Well-intentioned talk about foundation transparency is a good start, but according to new CEP research, nonprofit leaders want more. Fifty-one percent of the nonprofit leaders we surveyed want “a lot more” transparency about what foundations are learning. And more than 75 percent say they want more transparency about the impact that foundations themselves are having. What can foundations learn from these findings? Clear and open communication is important to nonprofits and can ultimately make a big difference in the funder-grantee relationship.

The survey used to gather information for this report is available here.
