Western Values Project

Tax-Exempt Status:


Western Values Project is a left-of-center advocacy project involved in public lands and environmentalist advocacy. It is a project of the New Venture Fund, a charitable arm of Arabella Advisors’ left-of-center advocacy network. [1]

However, as of January 2020, Accountable.US (another New Venture Fund project) has claimed control of Western Values Project. Accountable.US notes that it is “in the process of transitioning from the New Venture Fund” into a standalone nonprofit. [2]
