GrantAdvisor is a website that allows grant applicants, grantees, and others to share their first-hand experiences working with funders and for funders to respond on the record. Feedback is collected anonymously with the goal of improving grantmaker-grantee relationships and strengthening the fields in which funders work.

If you received a grant from Community Foundation in the past few years, we encourage you to complete a survey to help other nonprofit organizations learn from your experience — and to help us improve our processes.
