The Effective Voter Project, also called the Effective Voter Research Project and the Effective Voter Participation Project, is a project of the left-of-center New Venture Fund, a 501(c)(3) funding and fiscal sponsorship managed by the for-profit consulting firm Arabella Advisors in Washington, DC.
The project’s goals and activities are unclear as it appears that the Effective Voter Project does not have a website and may, in fact, be defunct (as of February 2021). However, as late as 2017 the group received substantial funding from major left-of-center funders.
The Effective Voter Project is a fiscally sponsored project of the New Venture Fund, a Washington, DC-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit. As such it does not file Form 990 reports with the IRS and all grants to it are paid to the New Venture Fund.
