|Grantee and Stakeholder Perception Surveys|
Surveys, like other evaluation tools, provide foundations an opportunity to get an honest assessment of their performance. Whether surveying your grantees, staff, board, or other key stakeholders, getting honest and unbiased feedback is imperative. NCNG is a neutral third party that can be the source you need to implement a survey with confidence.

The simple answer is that it is an evaluation tool for eliciting feedback from people in your work universe about your performance. Surveys can be used with foundation staff, boards, community stakeholders, and other partners.
NCNG offers this service because it is often easiest, more effective, and beneficial to have a neutral third party serve as a bridge between the assessor and the one begin assessed. A neutral third party can lend objectivity and promotes a sense of confidentiality that is an important element of evaluation. Increased objectivity and confidentiality increase the likelihood that the feedback elicited from the surveys is completely honest and critical, and that makes the evaluation more meaningful to the foundation. In addition, NCNG understands the foundation universe and is able to analyze survey responses with appropriate perspective and context and provide that feedback to foundations in a way that makes sense to them.
After conducting the survey, the next step is analyzing, reporting, and presenting the data. A clear, well-presented report will foster a common understanding of the data, and make the survey data meaningful and accessible to your staff. And in this way, your staff or organization has what it needs to be responsive to its grantees’ and stakeholders' input.
