The Peery Foundation came to us with a problem: how could they receive real, honest feedback from their grantees? They had an idea for a web app, and we made it a reality. The Funder Feedback tool collects anonymous feedback from grantees on interactions with each member of the Peery team. Every three months, the results are aggregated and results are delivered via a user-friendly online dashboard. Numerous foundations now utilize the tool, and it is helping to transform the relationships of philanthropic foundations to their grantees.
The Peery Foundation is a leading family foundation based in Silicon Valley. Their commitment to grantee-centric philanthropy (i.e. listening to their grantees and responding to their needs and wants) is unique in the foundation space and extends to Peery’s day-to-day communications with current and prospective grantees. They invest in and serve social entrepreneurs and leading organizations around the world that promote dignity and self-reliance.
“The Advocate Creative team created an elegant platform for us. We’ve shared it with several other foundations and it’s enabling us to push the limits of what is expected of foundations. We love our Funder Feedback tool!”
