End of 2006 – early 2007 Research was conducted to assess OTF’s impact in the Environment sector since 2001. Identify opportunities to enhance the impact of the Foundation’s grants over the next 3 to 5 years. We shouldn’t treat the environment sector in the same way that we treat the other sectors we fund. We should take into account its unique features and factor them into our strategies and approaches to funding this sector. ENGOs receive relatively little funding from government.
