Welcome to our survey

Candid (formerly the Foundation Center) and Centris (Rethinking Poverty) are conducting a study on the role of philanthropy in producing safe, healthy and just societies.

At a time when many people are questioning the value of philanthropy, the study aims to clarify its role in creating peaceful and inclusive societies that provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and responsive institutions. The study is relevant to the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal 16.

The survey set out here is the first stage of this study.  It  identifies stakeholders, strategies, and outcomes across a variety of dimensions of social progress.

Initial results will be published in the June 2019 issue of Alliance magazine, which will focus on philanthropy’s role in funding peace. A full report will be produced for discussion by the field at a variety of venues. All those who take part in the study will receive a copy of the report.

The survey has 20 questions that will take 7-8 minutes to complete.

All answers will be treated in confidence. Thank you for participating in our survey. Your views are important.

The survey will close on Wednesday 27 March.

If you have any questions, please contact me.
