Since February 2003, the Center for Effective Philanthropy (CEP) has conducted surveys of grantees on their perceptions of their philanthropic funders both on behalf of individual funders and independently. The purpose of these surveys is two-fold: to gather data that is useful to individual funders and to form the basis for broadly applicable research reports.
The Grantee Perception Report (GPR) shows an individual philanthropic funder its grantee perceptions relative to a set of perceptions of other funders whose grantees were surveyed by CEP.
The Center for Effective Philanthropy (CEP) surveyed the grantees of Ford Foundation ("Ford") during May and June 2012. CEP has surveyed Ford's grantees in the past. Where possible, ratings from these surveys are also shown in the report.
