Overview
The New Venture Fund’s Moving Beyond Oil project aims to contribute to the reduction of oil use and the transition to clean-energy alternatives in the transportation sector in the United States. This grant will seek to ensure that the country reduces oil production and consumption sufficiently to achieve our Paris 2020 emission reduction targets. In the absence of strong federal leadership, the climate work will shift to several key states, such as Washington, California, New York, New Jersey, Oregon, and Minnesota.

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.
