Overview
This supplemental grant will support New Venture Fund’s Western Energy Project. The Project seeks to protect ecologically important public lands in the Rocky Mountain West threatened by fossil energy leasing and development. This grant will enable the Western Energy Project to educate policy makers on the need to adopt Master Leasing Plans on Bureau of Land Management lands that will guide oil and gas leasing while protecting sensitive landscapes, secure strong methane regulations that will reduce the amount of gas that is flared or leaked into the atmosphere, and engage a broad array of stakeholders in support of the Project’s goals.

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 the Salmon State Project  
The New Venture Fund’s Salmon State project seeks to protect the most important salmon-spawning watersheds in Alaska. The project aims to support the economy, recreation, and subsistence needs of Alaskans by educating and engaging commercial and sport fishermen, Alaska Natives, and the public.
