This grant will support Upstream, a project of the New Venture Fund, which trains health centers to provide all methods of birth control, including IUDs and implants. Building on the work of the Contraceptive Choice Project at Washington University and the Bixby Center at the University of California, San Francisco, Upstream delivers a comprehensive training, technical assistance, and quality improvement model to health centers to help them address system-, clinic-, and provider-level barriers to offering patients same-day access to the most effective methods of contraception.

Grants to this Grantee
for the Open Education program at the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition
The Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC), a fiscally sponsored project of New Venture Fund, is a nonprofit advocacy group that supports systems for research and education that are open by default and equitable by design. With this grant, SPARC will continue to advance open education by building capacity through libraries, promoting structural change in policy and the marketplace, and supporting strategic collaboration. The outcome will be greater opportunities for the use of open educational resources and practices in North American higher education, which will enable more equitable and effective educational experiences for students. (Substrategy: Sustainable Systems)
for Project Unloaded
This grant supports Project Unloaded, a fiscally sponsored project of the New Venture Fund. The mission of Project Unloaded is to create a new cultural narrative that guns make us less safe. Through creative and cultural campaigns, Project Unloaded establishes safe spaces for open conversations about guns and provides accurate information about gun safety to inspire the next generation to choose on their own terms not to own and use guns. Grant funds would support Project Unloaded’s social media campaigns to reach teens throughout the U.S. Funding would also support youth engagement via Project Unloaded’s community partner program and national youth council.
