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 Fund for a Safer Future
Housed at the New Venture Fund, the Fund for a Safer Future (FSF) is a funder collaborative that helps reduce gun violence in the United States. When FSF started its work in 2011, the field of gun violence prevention was beginning a strategic shift that accelerated after the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, in 2012. Before 2011, the movement was small, relatively isolated, and significantly under-resourced. With the help of FSF and other donors, the movement has become larger, better organized, more coordinated and diverse, and increasingly strategic. During the term of this grant, FSF will be able to continue its coordination efforts among states and expand its research focus.
for Climate Interactive's En-ROADS project
New Venture Fund is the fiscal sponsor for Climate Interactive, which develops and runs interactive climate modeling tools that help people learn new ways of thinking about climate solutions. This support grant will enable Climate Interactive to add new structural components to the model to better capture new breakthroughs in clean electrification and carbon dioxide removal; convert the model simulator into an easy-to-use format in multiple languages; and expand the use of the tool by media, decision makers, and the public around the world.
