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. The program will engage scientists to understand which watersheds are most critical for salmon; educate state and federal decision makers on its findings; and build support among commercial and sport fishermen, Native American tribes, and the public. The program will also provide timely and relevant information to the media that cover salmon issues in Alaska, Canada, and the lower-forty-eight.

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 that sustain demand for effective implementation of the Common Core State Standards and related high-quality assessments. Effective implementation and measurement of the Common Core offers an unprecedented large-scale policy and practice opportunity to deliver a significant portion of deeper learning academic content knowledge and higher-order thinking skills to students.
for the Moving Beyond Oil project
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 consumption by promoting the deployment of electric drive vehicles in key states and cities, by supporting a diverse set of civil society coalitions.
for Climate and Clean Energy State Equity Fund
New Venture Fund’s Climate and Clean Energy Equity Fund will support grassroots groups in select states and cities working to transition to a clean energy future in ways that promote economic, social, and environmental justice — minimizing risks and maximizing benefits to low-income communities. The Fund’s climate equity framework addresses the need to broaden the base of support for climate action in order to accelerate the pace of change. The Fund will help organizations grow their memberships, strengthen their organizing skills, and build their capacity to advocate for strong clean energy and climate policies.
