Funders

One highly influential group to seek information and assistance in using adaptive management is the funding community within conservation.  Foundations of Success collaborates with the grant managers and staff of donor organizations, multi- and bi-lateral institutions, and other funding entities who wish to maximize and determine the individual and cross-grant impacts of the conservation projects and portfolios they support. To date FOS work with funders has resulted in more strategic grant making and more rigorous reporting standards that adhere to the adaptive management principles.
