Dear <<First Name>>,

We want to hear from you. As a grantee, you are in a unique position to provide us with important feedback about your interactions with the Foundation. To get this feedback, the Center for Effective Philanthropy (CEP) will conduct a confidential survey of our grantees. Our last grantee perception survey was administered by CEP in 2012. We learned a lot from your feedback and implemented changes in response. This next survey will help us learn more and further strengthen our relationships.

On September 13th, you will receive an email directly from Carly Marchioni at CEP (, informing you of the survey’s details. To ensure emails from CEP do not get caught in your spam filter, please add to your contact list. The 30-minute survey will be open for responses until October 13th.

Please be candid as CEP will maintain complete confidentiality of your responses. CEP will present results of the survey through a Grantee Perception Report®, in which CEP will show average ratings without revealing the identity of individual respondents. CEP will not share with us the names of grantees that did or did not respond to the survey.

CEP is a nonprofit that provides funders with tools to improve overall foundation performance. Over the past ten years, CEP has surveyed more than 50,000 grantees of more than 300 funders to build a dataset that allows foundations to assess their performance, as viewed by grantees, on a comparative basis.

If you have any questions about this process or the survey, please contact Carly Marchioni at CEP at 866-545-0800 ext. 255, or via email at:

Thank you for taking the time to help us assess and improve our performance.
