Type of Support
The New Venture Fund provides fiscal sponsorship and management support for public interest projects. The Fund would continue to manage the Collaborative for Student Success, a grantmaking initiative that works at the national, state, and local levels to pool foundation resources for communications and outreach efforts that sustain demand for effective implementation of the Common Core State Standards and their related assessments. Effective implementation and measurement of the Common Core offers an unprecedented large-scale policy and practice opportunity to deliver a significant portion of deeper learning knowledge and skills to students.
