CEP’s assessment tools offer funders candid, comparative feedback from a variety of key groups, including:
- Declined applicants
Our tools help funders gauge their performance relative to peer foundations on a range of crucial dimensions, such as:
- Quality of interactions
- Clarity of communication of goals and strategies
- Impact on fields, local communities, and geographies
Vice President Assessment Tools Kevin Bolduc responds to a question he is frequently asked by funders, "But, have you worked with a foundation like mine?":
More than 200 funders have received insights into their performance by subscribing to one or more of CEP’s assessment tools. CEP’s assessment tools provide unique insight because they draw on our comparative data sets to put results in context.
CEP can also provide custom analyses, such as comparison to foundation that are similar in key areas such as size, programmatic focus, or geography.
The feedback from key constituents not only provides important insights into a foundation’s performance, it also expands CEP’s data set, which informs the research we share with the field.
