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. To keep climate mitigation goals on track, a reduction of about 50 percent in oil use by 2030 is necessary. The project will develop and implement synergistic and integrated strategies to reach this target in key regions on the country. One of its near-term priorities is to support the Pacific Northwest region to establish low-carbon fuel standards that reduces greenhouse gas emissions.

Grants to this Grantee
for support of The League  
This grant will support The League, which uses narrative and culture change campaigns to create a cultural environment supportive of reproductive rights and justice. Using audience segmentation developed through a rigorous research process that resulted in "Story at Scale", they will reach "persuadable" groups with targeted campaigns designed to shift their perspectives and support of issues related to gender justice, including reproductive rights. (Substrategy: Advocacy)
for the SalmonState project  
The New Venture Fund’s SalmonState project seeks to protect the most important salmon-spawning watersheds in Alaska. The project aims to support the economic, recreational, and subsistence needs of Alaskans by educating and engaging commercial and sport fishermen, Alaska Natives, and the public about the importance of conserving its irreplaceable landscapes, including Bristol Bay and the Taku, Stikine, and Unuk watersheds, which are part of the greater Southeast Alaska transboundary eco-region.
