Grants to this Grantee
for support of the Vision First project  
This grant will support a project to establish partnerships with grassroots organizations to educate the public about threats to reproductive rights.
for the Open Internet Defense Fund  
This grant will support the Open Internet Defense Fund, a project of the New Venture Fund, and its 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 Climate and Clean Energy State Equity Fund  
New Venture Fund’s Climate and Clean Energy Equity Fund will support grassroots 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. The Fund’s climate equity framework addresses the need to broaden the base of support for climate action in order to accelerate the pace of change. The Fund will help organizations grow their memberships, strengthen their organizing skills, and build their capacity to advocate for strong clean energy and climate policies.
