This book chapter describes the origins of the Grantee Perception Report®(GPR), illustrates lessons learned, and provides examples of changes made by foundations that have used this tool. It also reports on some of the broadly applicable insights gained from CEP’s large-scale surveys of grantees. (This material is excerpted from the Grantmakers for Effective Organizations (GEO) book, A Funder’s Guide to Organizational Assessment.)
