We’re working to provide clear baselines and metrics to give everyone a better idea of performance.
We know everyone’s working hard to achieve their missions, but donors and the whole field need a common way to evaluate performance and success.
- Information on salaries, benefits, consultants, and boards
- Plan for the future
- Explore innovative ideas
More Benchmarking Projects
We’re Creating a Level Playing Field
No matter your role in the social sector, you need benchmarks to understand your performance. Foundation Benchmarkers are tools for peer-to-peer comparisons created by Foundation Center.
For donors, they offer easy, bottom-line metrics that can inform guidance given to management and boards. Community foundations can analyze their operating models, gauge their performance, plan for the future, inform policy changes, and explore innovative ideas. Foundations of all types can benefit from comprehensive annual benchmarking information on salaries, benefits, consultants, and boards.
We welcome additional opportunities to partner on funder benchmarking projects.
