Grants to this Grantee
for the Moving Beyond Oil Fund project  
The grant will help New Venture Fund launch transformational campaigns to accelerate the deployment of zero-emission vehicles in the U.S. The Moving Beyond Oil Fund is meant to rapidly incubate and launch campaigns that complement the long-term efforts of grantees focused on transportation electrification in the U.S.
for the Climate and Clean Energy Equity Fund  
The New Venture Fund’s Climate and Clean Energy Equity Fund will support groups in select states and cities working to transition to a clean energy future in ways that promote economic, social, and environmental justice — minimizing risks and maximizing benefits to low-income communities. The Fund’s climate equity framework addresses the need to broaden the base of support for climate action in order to accelerate the pace of change. The Fund will help organizations grow their memberships, strengthen their organizing skills, and build their capacity to advocate for strong clean-energy and climate policies.
for the Public Interest Technology University Network (PIT-UN) project  
The Public Interest Technology University Network (PIT-UN) Challenge Fund is a fiscally sponsored project of the New Venture Fund. The PIT-UN Challenge Fund project is aimed at building a foundation of public interest technology by supporting universities’ efforts to develop new programs in this area. Such programs can train graduates for careers in public, private, or nonprofit technology work and mix the skills that are vital for successful technology project research, development, and implementation. This multi-funder project is to support the development of Public Interest Technology programs within academia.
