Survey of The Rockefeller Foundation Grantees

To assist in better understanding how we can strengthen our work, the Foundation participated in the Center for Effective Philanthropy (CEP) survey of grantees to gain insight and objective feedback to  measure how we are working with our grantees and how to best continue our efforts. The Grantee Perception Report (GPR) is a confidential survey that covers a range of topics including grantees’ perceptions of their impact in the fields we support, the clarity and consistency of our communications, the grant application process, as well as grantees’ overall satisfaction with us as a funder. Summary of Findings: Survey of The Rockefeller Foundation Grantees details the results of that survey.
