The New Venture Fund (NVF) is a public charity that supports innovative and effective public interest projects in conservation, global health, public policy, international development, education, disaster recovery, and the arts. NVF is the fiscal sponsor of the 2020 Census Project.

This grant supports the 2020 Census Project’s goal of ensuring a fair and accurate U.S. Census in 2020, in mainly three areas: 1) advocating to ensure adequate federal funding for and implementation of the Census; 2) raising awareness among the public (in particular, marginalized populations) about the ways in which the decennial Census affects their own lives; and 3) increasing support from philanthropic funders.
