  • Philamplify Grantee Survey

    We are pleased to share the results of a recent survey of foundation grantees. Filled with valuable insights on our relationship with the individual and organizations we partner with on a daily basis, this is the most comprehensive survey of WFF grantees to date. We have three primary takeaways: Grantees have a strong overall perception of the foundation as an effective partner; A strong majority of grantees agree with our efforts to measure the effectiveness of grant-making; and Grantees want further support and partnership from us including, exposure and connections to other funding sources as well as networking and convening among grantees. The survey was conducted by the National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy. We value the actionable findings of this survey and look forward to continuing and expanding upon our strong relationships with hundreds of foundation grantees.
