Overview
The New Venture Fund’s Moving Beyond Oil project aims to contribute to the reduction of oil use and to the transition to clean-energy alternatives in the transportation sector in the United States. After the Climate Agreement in Paris, there is even more consensus that in order to keep climate mitigation goals on track, a reduction of about 50 percent in oil use by 2030 is necessary. This year’s priorities include the integration of clean transportation policies in key states, such as California, with the prevention of new infrastructure for high-carbon oil development.

Grants to this Grantee
for the Fund for a Safer Future  
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 the Salmon State Project  
The New Venture Fund’s Salmon State project seeks to protect the most important salmon-spawning watersheds in Alaska. The project aims to support the economy, recreation, and subsistence needs of Alaskans by educating and engaging commercial and sport fishermen, Alaska Natives, and the public.
