George Gund Foundation 2010 Grantee Perception Report

The George Gund Foundation 2010 Grantee Perception Report (GPR), a survey conducted by the Center for Effective Philanthropy, is now available for viewing on the Foundation website.

The 2010 survey, which was sent to all of the Foundation’s 2009 grantees and had a 77% response rate, is anonymous. Comments and rankings are aggregated by the Center for Effective Philanthropy and not attributed to individual grantees. The GPR allows foundations to understand how they are perceived and how results compare with other philanthropic peers.

This is the third George Gund Foundation GPR report since 2003, and each time staff have carefully analyzed results and made changes in Foundation operations that are responsive to grantee concerns and improve the grantmaking process.

Refugees & Immigrants

The raid lead to the arrest and detention of 146 individuals who were deemed to be illegal immigrants, primarily from Guatemala.
