FSF pools resources to invest in targeted, practical, strategies to reduce gun injuries and deaths.
FSF plays a strategic role in the gun violence prevention movement. We are a funder collaborative that helps reduce gun violence in the United States by supporting rational, evidence-based policies at the local, state and federal levels. We invest in organizations, research institutions, and advocates to strengthen policies that reduce the toll of gun violence, and we engage new donors in the movement. FSF currently includes 20 foundation and individual donors and has made more than $7M in grants to reduce gun violence since 2011.
FSF is managed by an Advisory Committee made up of member representatives. Together, the Advisory Committee pursues a strategy that includes support for effective movement building, policy-relevant research projects, well-timed state advocacy campaigns, data-driven communications work, and the development of innovative legal strategies that support the movement.
