I was asked to assist with some fundraising work for the Fund. Working with a Board member and the E.D. I was impressed by the commitment and level of investigation done by this group to ascertain partners and organizations to whom they choose to donate. The Fund is interested in finding the on-the-ground solutions and approaches to environmental challenges: finding the groups in different locations that can do significant work yet lack the size and income necessary. The Fund's ability to find and vet these other smaller firms is impressive and their legacy has made some important and prescient investments. The combined knowledge, experience and expertise is what sets them above other organizations. I was very impressed by their track record and operation.
