675+ organizations implement high-quality feedback loops with Listen4Good
Our signature initiative, Listen4Good, offers expert tools, coaching, and resources to direct-service organizations ready to improve their capacity to listen. Funders participate in Listen4Good as sponsors, co-learners, and catalysts in supporting feedback efforts, while also enhancing their own listening practices.
What We Do
Along with building capacity for high-quality client feedback loops in the social sector, our pooled resources provide grants, learning opportunities, inspiration, and community-building around participatory grantmaking, feedback research, funder listening, field building, and expanding feedback efforts internationally.
Why Listening Matters
We believe that funders and the organizations they support can be more effective, do more good in the world, and partner in the creation of more equitable outcomes if we are open to systematically listening to, and acting on, feedback from the people and communities at the heart of our work, especially those whose voices, historically and because of persistent systemic and structural racism, have been least heard.
