Funder Behavior and Outlook Survey Results
In October 2021, Philanthropy Massachusetts conducted a Funder Member Survey. As the philanthropic community continues to adapt and work to address the impacts of COVID-19 and ongoing racial disparities and injustices, we sought to learn more about how funders have responded and evolved. In the survey we asked funders to:
- reflect on current behavior and practices,
- consider their equity and inclusion work and
- look ahead to 2022, particularly their interests and needs.
