Overview
The Pew Charitable Trusts lays the foundation for effective policies and practices by invigorating civic life, conducting research, informing and engaging citizens, linking diverse interests to pursue a common cause, and insisting on tangible results. Pew’s Safe Spaces Project provides a nonpartisan, nonpolitical "safe space" to foster bipartisan relationship building and management best practices that can lead to better informed and more effective public policy. This grant will enable Pew to continue its work with chiefs of staff in the U.S. House of Representatives in an effort to build, strengthen, and sustain a bipartisan organization that will foster relationships, share best practices, and strengthen the capacity of Congress.

Grants to this Grantee
for exploration of collaborative grantmaking on elections  
The Pew Charitable Trusts is working with a small group of funding partners to strengthen the bedrock of American democracy: our elections. There are promising opportunities to scale proven solutions and pursue nonpartisan reform, but the scale is beyond what any single actor can tackle. Therefore, The Pew Charitable Trusts is assessing the viability of a multi-donor philanthropic project to improve access to, the integrity of, and belief in the U.S. electoral system. This exploration aims to understand the opportunities for impact, the competitive landscape, potential interventions to support, and the nature and size of any opportunity.
for U.S. Public Lands and Rivers Conservation  
The Pew Charitable Trusts’ U.S. Public Lands and Rivers Conservation project works with communities West-wide to conserve biodiversity by identifying and protecting wildlife corridors, protecting and restoring free-flowing rivers, and expanding core habitat protections. In particular, Pew is working with other Western Conservation grantees, scientists, local partners, tribes, sportsmen and sportswomen groups, members of the business community, mayors, county commissioners, veterans, and others to advance new policies that safeguard these wild places and wild rivers for future generations to use and enjoy. At the local level, Pew continues to work with federal, state, and local natural resource officials and agencies to secure the removal or replacement of river barriers impeding fish passage, in coordination with Resources Legacy Fund’s Open Rivers Fund; seek new public funding for construction of wildlife crossing infrastructure projects within identified migration corridors; and preserve core areas of passageway for wildlife connectivity through federal land-use plans.
