The Goldstream Group is excited to partner with the Margaret A. Cargill Philanthropies on its Southeast Alaska Impact Assessment and Learning Project. The purpose of this impact evaluation is to assess the relationship between the principles guiding MACP’s environmental funding in Southeast Alaska and the expected outcomes of funded programs in areas such as attitudes, behaviors, ecology, economy, and community. This will lead to a better understanding of factors of community-based conservation strategies that engage Southeast Alaska communities and have the greatest impacts on conservation goals and community well-being.
