Overview
Salmon supports a substantial part of Alaska’s economy, helps maintain subsistence fishing rights, and provides recreational fishing opportunities. The New Venture Fund’s Salmon State program seeks to secure state and federal policies in Alaska to protect the most important salmon spawning watersheds in the state necessary to support the state’s economy and the rights of Native Alaskans. The program will engage scientists; educate state and federal decision makers on its findings; and build support among commercial and sport fishermen, Native American tribes, and the public.

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.
