Grants to this Grantee
for the Fund for a Safer Future  
Housed at the New Venture Fund, the Fund for a Safer Future (FSF) is a funder collaborative that helps reduce gun violence in the United States. When FSF started its work in 2011, the field of gun violence prevention was beginning a strategic shift that accelerated after the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, in 2012. Before 2011, the movement was small, relatively isolated, and significantly under-resourced. With the help of FSF and other donors, the movement has become larger, better organized, more coordinated and diverse, and increasingly strategic. During the term of this grant, FSF will be able to continue its coordination efforts among states and expand its research focus.
for the Salmon State Project  
The New Venture Fund’s Salmon State project seeks to protect the most important salmon-spawning watersheds in Alaska. The project aims to support the economy, recreation, and subsistence needs of Alaskans by educating and engaging commercial and sport fishermen, Alaska Natives, and the public.
