Image for New Report on the Future of Foundation Philanthropy

Dec 20, 2016

The Center for Effective Philanthropy (CEP) has released a new report entitled “The Future of Foundation Philanthropy: The CEO Perspective.” Based on data gathered from over 200 foundation CEOs from May to June 2016, the report “captures foundation leaders’ views on challenges and concerns about the changing landscape in which they work, practices they believe to hold the most promise for helping foundations reach their potential, and the most pressing issues that will influence foundation philanthropy in the coming years.”

According to CEP, “the report shows that two-thirds of foundation CEOs believe in the potential of foundations to make a significant difference in society, but most do not see foundations taking full advantage of their opportunities for impact. However, it also finds reasons for optimism for the future of philanthropy: much of what CEOs see as standing in their way is under their control to change, and they identify a number of ways foundations can get closer to realizing their potential for the future — such as learning from the experiences of those they are ultimately trying to help and learning from the knowledge or experiences of grantees.”
