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 renewal grant will support the Project’s efforts to secure oil and gas leasing plans in four Western states that protect 3 million acres of fragile land, and ensure that 30 million acres of land critical to sage grouse survival are set off limits to energy development. In addition, the Project seeks new regulations to protect public health that limit the amount of methane that can be released into the atmosphere.

Grants to this Grantee
for support of The League  
This grant will support The League, which uses narrative and culture change campaigns to create a cultural environment supportive of reproductive rights and justice. Using audience segmentation developed through a rigorous research process that resulted in "Story at Scale", they will reach "persuadable" groups with targeted campaigns designed to shift their perspectives and support of issues related to gender justice, including reproductive rights. (Substrategy: Advocacy)
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. This grant will allow the Collaborative to build public will and influence the discussion around what it means to "return to school" in the face of a global pandemic. The Collaborative will provide targeted state investments to the field, identify and fill communications gaps in key strategic areas, and further build out coalitions of support.
