New Venture Fund
For Support Of The Collaborative For Student Success
Type of SupportGeneral Support/Program
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. This grant will allow the Collaborative to build public will and influence the discussion around what it means to "return to school" in the face of a global pandemic. The Collaborative will provide targeted state investments to the field, identify and fill communications gaps in key strategic areas, and further build out coalitions of support.

Grants to this Grantee
for the SumOfUs
The Hub Education and Engagement Fund is a project of the New Venture Fund, a nonprofit that hosts and incubates a wide range of charitable projects, in conservation, education, global health, and other areas. The fund will undertake the SumOfUs project, which aims to advance a race-conscious economic narrative to replace the zero-sum paradigm that undergirds so many neoliberal policy debates. The project will amplify the core concepts from the 2021 book by Heather McGhee, “The Sum of Us,” marshalling evidence of racism’s role in the rise of neoliberalism and inequality, while promoting solutions for broad-based prosperity. The grant supports multimedia content creation, strategic communications, virtual convenings, research, advising and program support, and administration. Broader understanding of the intersections of race and class will improve policy design and help to provide a new common sense within the field of economic justice experts and advocates.
for the Public Interest Technology University Network (PIT-UN) Fund
The Public Interest Technology University Network (PIT-UN) has grown to 48 institutions, helping to define and develop the PIT ecosystem within academia. In order to support its mission, PIT-UN established the PIT-UN Challenge Fund, which is fiscally sponsored by New Venture Fund. Through the creation of courses and educational programming, PIT-UN offers career pathway models for practitioners-in-training, supports faculty in their efforts to ensure that PIT is recognized and respected as a discipline, and invests $7.8 million in supporting projects that are building a skilled and diverse pipeline of PIT practitioners. This grant provides general support for the PIT-UN Fund.
