Established in April 2002, The Oak Hill Fund (OHF) promotes the well-being of mankind through effective and inspiring grantmaking. We are located in Charlottesville, VA.
For the past 14 years, the Environmentally Sustainable Affordable Design (ESAD) Program has been the primary philanthropic focus at The Oak Hill Fund. During this period, the fund has been privileged to partner with over 110 Sustainable and Affordable Housing organizations as well as an additional 50 Educational institutions in supporting and incorporating sustainability and affordability in residential design.
Overall, the ESAD program awarded 334 grants totaling over $26.6 million to over 150 unique organizations in the United States. Based on the remarkable success achieved by our grantees, and related to an ongoing generational transition of leadership at The Oak Hill Fund, the Board has decided that it is time to close the Environmentally Sustainable Affordable Design Program (effective immediately). The grant budget previously committed to the ESAD programs will be shifted to the programmatic foci of the next generation of leadership at The Oak Hill Fund.
If you were an ESAD grant recipient, we certainly wish you well, and hope that you will continue to promote the ESAD mission in your future efforts. We also sincerely thank you for all that you have already done to improve affordable residential design and construction throughout the United States. We are certain that you have made a difference!
