About this grant

This grant continues support for the Center for Effective Philanthropy’s efforts to help community foundations define, assess, and improve their overall performance. Over the next two years, the center will expand its data set of grantee perceptions of community foundations and publish a report on key findings, research the different governance practices between private and community foundation boards, and publish a case study on how one community foundation has used the center’s Grantee Perception Report to assess and improve its performance. The center collaborates with BoardSource on its community foundation governance work, and it has several key community foundations on its advisory committee.
