Transparency self-assessment

Does your foundation have glass pockets? How transparent is your foundation’s website? Use our transparency self-assessment to find out. Use this checklist (available as a PDF or Microsoft Word Document) to review the 26 indicators that signal a foundation’s openness, and to identify ways to improve your foundation’s transparency practices. You can also use these indicators to guide an internal conversation about the value increased transparency would bring to your work, and to determine which indicators best align with your current values. Once you’ve completed inventorying the transparency of your foundation’s website, refer to the chart on the last page to determine your website's current transparency level and plan for next steps.
