We are committed to learning from our efforts and continuously improving in pursuit of the greatest impact.
At Barr, we seek to learn at multiple levels, from individual grants to initiatives and overall strategies.

In Fall 2017, Barr commissioned the Center for Effective Philanthropy to conduct a confidential survey of our grantees about what it's like to work with us—the Grantee Perception Report (GPR). Read more about the results from our survey and our plans to act on grantee feedback:

We are committed to responding to what we heard from our partners. Learn more about Barr's efforts to improve how we work by visiting our GPR page.
We welcome your ideas
We always strive to improve our grantee and grant-seeker experience, and we welcome your input via our grantmaking process feedback form.
Developing Outputs and Outcomes
Barr and its grantees co-develop outputs and outcomes as part of the application process. These outputs and outcomes define what progress and success will look like for each grant. This guide is a resource to better understand evaluation terminology and build realistic metrics for proposed grants.Learn more about outputs and outcomes
