Fund for a Safer Future (FSF) is a gun control organization that is part of an umbrella group called the New Venture Fund (NVF).  New Venture Fund is a funding and fiscal sponsorship nonprofit that supports the creation of left-of-center advocacy groups considered charitable under the Internal Revenue Code such as Fund for a Safer Future.  NVF and FSF are part of the network of organizations controlled by left-of-center philanthropic consultancy Arabella Advisors. 
In 2018, along with the Joyce Foundation, FSF funded a study led by the University of Washington, Northeastern University and Harvard University to show that “the presence of a firearm increases the risk for suicide…may lead people to think twice about whether or not firearm ownership and their storage practices are really the safest options.” 
FSF, along with other left-wing charitable foundations, donated to organizations to advocate for gun control in the United States after a 2018 school shooting in Florida. The Langeloth Foundation gave $500,000 to Guns Down America, another gun control organization, and has contributed to FSF for similar measures. 
FSF funds the pro-gun-control advocacy journalism organization The Trace. The Trace publishes articles on gun control, the National Rifle Association, and mass shooting events. 
Fund for a Safer Future has received grants from the CEO of Vail Resorts Rob Katz, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the MacArthur Foundation, the McCormick Foundation, the Broad Foundation, the Crown & Goodman Family Foundations, the David Bohnett Foundation, the True North Foundation, the Jacob and Valeria Langeloth Foundation, the Joyce Foundation, the Lisa and Douglas Goldman Fund, the Arrow Family Fund, and the Alphawood Foundation. 
In 2013, liberal donors Eli Broad and David Bohnett wrote an op-ed asking for donors to support philanthropic efforts to support gun control, specifically mentioning Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns (a predecessor to Everytown for Gun Safety) and Fund for a Safer Future.
