In 2018, The Counselling Foundation of Canada in collaboration with the Lawson Foundation, and the Laidlaw Foundation undertook a project to gather feedback from our grant recipients. GrantBook was hired to collect and synthesize the confidential feedback about grant recipients’ experiences of working with us. Grant recipients are indispensable partners in achieving our mission. Open dialogue and honest feedback are central to effective partnership, 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. This final report is part of our efforts to be transparent and to encourage ongoing openness to talk about how we can continually improve.
