Working side by side, we bring good business practice to good causes. Facilitating impactful relationships, we increase the capacity and sustainability of nonprofits, while extending the impact of our members.

SVP’s programming includes a range of capacity building support for Boulder County’s nonprofit sector. From training and leadership support to deep-dive consulting, our offerings strengthen nonprofits from the inside out, so they can better deliver on their missions.

In addition to the core work we do with Boulder County nonprofits, SVP also turns a lens on our members, enhancing the understanding and sophistication of how these allies engage with and in the nonprofit sector. Nonprofit advocacy, evaluation of efforts, knowledge exchange and targeted cash grants in support of capacity work round out our engagement in the sector.

And that is what stands out for me as I look forward to 2017. We have plans for big impact and I know our people will give their all for a brighter future. Read More »
