Type of Support
The New Venture Fund would use this grant to create a new West-wide communications program that would build strong relationships with reporters, draw from the best polling to craft persuasive messages, rapidly respond to attacks on public land protections, generate news on a steady basis and enlist a broad array of Westerners as spokespeople. This new project would fill a gap in the capacities of existing environmental NGOs focused on western conservation.
