Overview
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 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.
for Climate Interactive's En-ROADS project  
New Venture Fund is the fiscal sponsor for Climate Interactive, which develops and runs interactive climate modeling tools that help people learn new ways of thinking about climate solutions. This support grant will enable Climate Interactive to add new structural components to the model to better capture new breakthroughs in clean electrification and carbon dioxide removal; convert the model simulator into an easy-to-use format in multiple languages; and expand the use of the tool by media, decision makers, and the public around the world.
