Oak Foundation Evaluation and Strategic Plan


Cascadia conducted an evaluation of the Oak Foundation Environment Program’s global grants (which totaled over $151 million from 2009-2013) in the areas of climate change mitigation and marine conservation, using interviews and desktop research. The Oak Foundation is one of the five largest foundation contributors to grants in these two fields; it seeks to help achieve a zero-carbon global economy and the recovery of marine fisheries and habitats. Cascadia is currently building on the evaluation findings by facilitating a strategic planning process for program staff, which will result in a new framework to guide the Foundation’s work in these areas over the next five years.   

I was very pleased with the experience we had recently working with Cascadia to develop our carbon inventory and finalize our sustainable action guide. It’s a very daunting task to begin the process of changing the way we do business and measure our success so to have the combination of expertise and patience that you brought to the effort really made it enjoyable. I look forward to continuing to work with Cascadia as BNBuilders moves farther and farther along in this process.
