The Lawson Foundation in collaboration with our Foundation House partners, The Counselling Foundation of Canada and Laidlaw Foundation, recently undertook a project to gather feedback from our grant recipients. An independent organization, GrantBook, was hired to collect and synthesize the confidential feedback about grant recipients’ experiences of working with us.
As part of our efforts to be transparent and to encourage ongoing openness to talk about how we can continually improve, we are making our “Grantee Perceptions Survey Results” final report public.
The Lawson Foundations’ board and staff believe that grant recipients are indispensable partners in achieving our mission. Open dialogue and honest feedback are central to effective partnerships, and while we strive to be responsive and open, we also know that it isn’t always easy to tell a funder that there is room for improvement. We hope that undertaking this survey through an independent body allowed us to meet this objective.
