The Center collaborated with the Raven Indigenous Impact Foundation (Raven) in the development of a Community-Driven Outcomes Contract (C-DOC) for the training of an indigenous workforce and the installation of geothermal units and other energy efficiency retrofits for the indigenous Dakota Nation of Sioux Valley in the province of Manitoba Canada. In addition to the development of the C-DOC, the Center also assisted in the preparation of an investment memo and a financial model reflecting the capital flow of the Community-Driven Outcomes Contract as a pilot transaction for Raven’s upcoming outcomes based fund. Finally, the Center also provided technical assistance and co-authored a thought paper on the outcome-based financing landscape in Canada.

Sorenson Impact Center assisted Raven in advance of the launch of their outcomes fund with the goal to improve the well-being of Indigenous Peoples through research and the creation of supportive financial solutions centering on the needs, traditions, and voices of Indigenous communities.
