I am a firm believer in the power of listening to community and making data-driven decisions. Most often, foundations focus on analyzing grantee data regarding the efficacy and impact of nonprofit organizations' work in community. Yet, we too must pause and take stock of the effectiveness of our organization.
When I joined Moses Taylor Foundation earlier this year, I was excited to learn that data from a second Grantee Perception Survey was being analyzed by the Center for Effective Philanthropy (CEP). The purpose of the survey was to assess the Foundation’s impact, communications, and processes to help us improve our effectiveness. The survey captured anonymous data from 55 active grantees and compared that data to results from the initial 2017 survey, as well as a comparison group of similar foundations from across the country.
I am proud to be part of an organization focused on continuous improvement and to share with you a brief summary of the findings from the most recent survey. A copy of the full report can be accessed below.

Whether or not you participated in the survey or have ever received funding from the Foundation, I am always eager to hear your feedback regarding how Moses Taylor Foundation can further advance our mission to improve the health of people in Northeastern Pennsylvania.
