The New Venture Fund provides fiscal sponsorship and management for public interest projects. The fund continues to manage the Collaborative for Student Success—a grantmaking initiative that pools resources from several foundations for support of work at the national, state, and local levels for communications and outreach efforts that sustain demand for effective implementation of the Common Core State Standards and related high-quality 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 academic content knowledge and higher-order thinking skills to students.
