Fund for a Safer Future 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 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 30 foundations and individual donors.
Since 2011, the Fund has made more than $18m in grants to reduce gun violence.
FSF is managed by an Advisory Committee made up of member representatives. Together, the Advisory Committee pursues a strategy that prioritizes community-based gun violence, effective movement building, policy-relevant research projects, state-based advocacy campaigns, data-driven communications work, and innovative legal strategies.
