The 2019 Grantee Perception Report (GPR) finds that, overall, grantees remain very satisfied with their experiences with the Foundation, allowing us to build on those recognized strengths.
Success in the efforts of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWFJ) to build a Culture of Health depends significantly on our collaborators. To help accomplish this vision, it is important to gather relevant information from our grantees.
On many measures in 2019, grantee perceptions have declined compared to 2017 and 2015 findings, which provide opportunities for improvement.
Since 2004, we have partnered with the Center for Effective Philanthropy (CEP) to conduct a biennial survey of grantees about their perceptions of, and experiences with, the Foundation. CEP fielded the survey in spring 2019 in which 776 grantees responded, yielding a response rate of 56 percent, which is similar to the median of our peer comparison cohort. The responses result in CEP’s Grantee Perception Report (GPR), which assists RWJF in confirming stronger areas and to focus on those that require attention in order to achieve our vision of a Culture of Health that provides everyone in America a fair and just opportunity for health and well-being.
