Overview
The Fossil Fuel Reduction project is a multi-funder and multi-year project of the New Venture Fund. Its purpose is to reduce the impacts on people, wildlife, water, soil, and air from the development of unconventional types of oil. The extraction and processing of unconventional oils in North America have high carbon intensity and other environmental and human impacts. To ensure that atmospheric concentrations of carbon not exceed 450 parts per million, about two-thirds of oil reserves should be kept in the ground.

Grants to this Grantee
for support of the Collaborative for Student Success  
The New Venture Fund provides fiscal sponsorship and management for public interest projects. The fund continues to manage the Collaborative for Student Success — a grantmaking initiative that pools resources from several foundations for support of work at the national, state, and local levels for communications and outreach efforts. This grant will allow the Collaborative to build public will and influence the discussion around what it means to "return to school" in the face of a global pandemic. The Collaborative will provide targeted state investments to the field, identify and fill communications gaps in key strategic areas, and further build out coalitions of support.
