Overview
The Safety Net Defense Fund project, a collaboration among the New Venture Fund, the Center for Community Change, and the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, seeks to protect key anti-poverty programs that comprise the modern safety net such as the Affordable Care Act, Medicaid, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, and Supplemental Security Income. Further, the project intends to prevent the adoption of block grants by raising public awareness of proposals to undermine these programs.

Grants to this Grantee
for the SalmonState project  
The New Venture Fund’s SalmonState project seeks to protect the most important salmon-spawning watersheds in Alaska. The project aims to support the economic, recreational, and subsistence needs of Alaskans by educating and engaging commercial and sport fishermen, Alaska Natives, and the public about the importance of conserving its irreplaceable landscapes, including Bristol Bay and the Taku, Stikine, and Unuk watersheds, which are part of the greater Southeast Alaska transboundary eco-region.

for support of the Collaborative for Student Success  
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.
