CEP provides data and insight so philanthropic funders can better define, assess, and improve their effectiveness and, as a result, their intended impact. With this research project, CEP plans to build on its previous work on foundation transparency by investigating how foundations are assessing what’s working and what isn’t (both in their programmatic areas and in their internal operations), how they use that information, and how they decide what to be open about.
