Grants to this Grantee
for the Women's Funds Collaborative  
The New Venture Fund (NVF) conducts public interest projects and provides professional insight and support to institutions and individuals seeking to foster change through strategic philanthropy. This grant to NVF, which serves as the fiscal sponsor for this project, is aligned with the overall Initiative strategy and will support the ongoing design, launch, and implementation of the Women's Funds Collaborative, a multidonor collaborative that aims to strengthen the infrastructure and visibility of women's funds. It has four goals: support the institutional health of individual women's funds; support cohorts of women's funds to be better positioned collectively to attract resources; support an evidence-based narrative to advocate for women's funds; and share lessons from feminist philanthropy.
for supporting English Learners Success Forum  
The English Learners Success Forum, a project of the New Venture Fund, collaborates with leading researchers in the field, district leaders, teachers, content creators, and education funders to raise the instructional rigor for students categorized as English learners (ELs). The group will conduct classroom-based case studies and build field awareness of effective, openly licensed, content-specific EL instructional supports in core curriculum and professional learning materials. This work will build, amplify, and support efforts that help students furthest from opportunity learn deeply.
