Overview
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 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.
