New Venture Fund

For Support Of The Upstream Project

Overview
Many women across the country are not offered or able to obtain the most effective forms of contraception, such as IUDs or implants, when they visit a health care center. This grant would provide unrestricted funds to support Upstream, a project of the New Venture Fund, aimed at developing strategies to increase access to the most effective methods of birth control. Building on the work of the Contraceptive Choice Project at Washington University and the Bixby Center at the University of California, San Francisco, Upstream plans to develop and test a new, enhanced training intervention at a diverse set of health centers and measure its impact in a six-site pilot project.

for the Evergreen Collaborative  
This grant supports the Evergreen Collaborative, a new initiative to elevate the urgency and positive opportunities of bold climate action. The collaborative’s work will focus initially on policies to drive new public investment and strong regulatory standards that advance climate solutions. This work is informed by the current economic crisis triggered by COVID-19 pandemic, trade wars over oil, and the failure to invest in American infrastructure and a strong social safety net.
