The EITC Funders Network Membership Survey was launched on April 5, 2016 and sent out to all 296 EITC Funders Network members. The survey was developed to gather information on the types of organizations that make up the Network, the general level of member satisfaction, feedback on Network services, and suggestions for future work. The following are a few of the overarching themes that came out of this evaluation:
- The majority of respondents are satisfied or very satisfied with the Network, overall. In terms of specific services, the highest satisfaction scores were awarded to email updates, the eNewsletters, and the webinars.
- Respondents noted the importance of linking the EITC to other asset-building initiatives and also framing conversations and resources specifically from the point of view of funders.
- Substantive knowledge and the dissemination of resources related to the EITC were named as primary strengths of the Network. More opportunities to network with other funders and sharing lessons learned were named as suggestions for moving forward.
Many thanks to those of you who participated in the 2016 Membership Survey. The needs of our membership drive the work of the Network, and we are always grateful for your feedback.
