The New Venture Fund’s Western Energy Project seeks to protect ecologically important public lands in the Rocky Mountain West threatened by fossil energy leasing and development. This grant would support its efforts to promote landscape-level planning on public lands to identify where energy development will, and will not, occur; to educate decision makers on the need for a public lands energy policy that balances energy development with conservation and to engage a diverse array of interests in support of balanced energy policies that value the conservation of our Western land, water, and wildlife habitat.

Grants to this Grantee
for the Oakland Fund for Public Innovation
The mission of the Oakland Fund for Public Innovation (OFPI), a project housed at the New Venture Fund, is to engage public- and private-sector partners to innovate, test, and scale ideas that will enhance and help improve the city of Oakland. This fund is strategically positioned to leverage the resources and strengths of the public and private sectors to support city priorities. The Hewlett Foundation’s support will help OFPI tackle some of Oakland’s most complex issues of income inequality, housing, employment, and racial equity, with a focus on the most vulnerable communities in the city.
for the Collective Action Fund for Accountability, Resilience, and Adaptation
for the Climate and Clean Energy Equity Fund
The New Venture Fund’s Climate and Clean Energy Equity Fund supports 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.
