Overview
This renewal grant will continue support for the New Venture Fund’s Center for Western Priorities. The Center is a West-wide communications effort designed to educate the media, public, and decision makers about the impacts of fossil energy development on public lands. The Center builds relationships with reporters, draws from the best polling to craft persuasive messages, rapidly responds to arguments advocating for the elimination of public land protections, steadily generates reports and news, and enlists a broad array of westerners as spokespeople. The Center also works closely with conservation organizations across the West to fill gaps in communications capacities.

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.
