Type of Support
The New Venture Fund (NVF) is a public charity that offers grant-making services, executes donor-developed projects, and provides full fiscal sponsorship that includes grant and contract management for innovative public-interest projects. NVF will launch a national, multi-donor fund—provisionally to be known as the Common Core Communications Collaborative (CCCC)—that will pool resources from an initial set of five foundations in support of strategic communications and outreach efforts at the national, state, and local levels to help ensure sustained demand for effective implementation of the Common Core State Standards and their related assessments. A total initial project budget of $1.1 million will support planning efforts, including developing a long-term strategy for the Collaborative and establishing a governance and decision-making structure, and providing initial investments to the field via sub grants and contracts to support messaging regarding Common Core implementation.
