Listen4Good is a Fund for Shared Insight initiative that provides nonprofits and government agencies with an end-to-end system for soliciting and responding to direct client feedback about what’s working and not from their perspective.
The Listen4Good program is designed to help organizations build high-quality feedback loops with clients, make strategic decisions, and partner more closely with the communities they serve. Its feedback analytics are powered by SurveyMonkey Enterprise, an agile feedback solution from Momentive.*
With a commitment to bring forward the voices of those often least heard, Listen4Good’s program is grounded in principles and practices of equity and inclusion.
Listen4Good serves over 575 nonprofit organizations across the U.S. Using SurveyMonkey Enterprise, organizations get tools to efficiently gather feedback from the people they serve. Every nonprofit Listen4Good works with is direct-service, meaning that they help communities through on-the-ground services, advocacy, or physical support.
With such diverse organizations to serve, Listen4Good needed solutions with powerful analytics and scope, as well as an intuitive interface. SurveyMonkey Enterprise is a trusted brand in the nonprofit sector, with an agile user experience and tools for segmenting data that nonprofits appreciate.
Listen4Good provides standardized survey questions that give nonprofits benchmarks to learn from, while empowering them to add customized feedback questions to support their specific goals and areas of interest. The result? A knowledge-based and collaborative approach that drives organizational change.

Access to a diverse group of coaching and support professionals who have expertise in survey design, data analysis, and organizational change, and bring a
strong equity lens.

Each Listen4Good program is specially designed to help nonprofits listen and respond to the people most impacted by their work.
By providing feedback opportunities to clients, nonprofits are able to amplify the perspectives of those receiving services—many of whom have been historically or systematically prevented from having their voices heard.
Listen4Good organizations build the capacity to listen and respond to their clients, leading to positive changes in the way they make decisions, deliver services, and create sustained, power-sharing partnerships.
