Overview
This grant will support the Media Democracy Fund, a project of the New Venture Fund, and its ongoing work to promote an open internet. It will focus on protecting net neutrality, the principle that internet service providers and government should treat all data on the internet equally, not discriminating or charging differentially by user or content. The fund both provides grants to organizations engaged in open internet work and coordinates coalitions of those organizations.

for the Climate and Clean Energy Equity Fund  
The New Venture Fund’s Climate and Clean Energy Equity Fund will support groups in select states and cities working to transition to a clean energy future in ways that promote economic, social, and environmental justice — minimizing risks and maximizing benefits to low-income communities.
