Nonprofits are assessing their performance but lack the resources they need to do more.
That's among the messages in a new research report from CEP on nonprofit performance assessment, Assessing to Achieve High Performance: What Nonprofits are Doing and How Foundations Can Help.
For nonprofits, measuring and improving performance is a challenging endeavor. For foundation leaders to most effectively support grantees, more needs to be understood about the extent to which nonprofits are assessing performance, how they are approaching this work, and what they are looking for from their funders to support it. And so CEP turned to our national panel of nonprofit leaders with questions about their assessment strategies and how they are supported.
What did we learn?
The report is co-authored by members of CEP's research team: Ellie Buteau, Ramya Gopal, and Jennifer Glickman. We welcome your feedback on this research, and invite you to join the conversation and share your thoughts by tweeting with the hashtag #GranteeVoice.
