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.

As a Catapult Investee, KGNU will receive extensive consulting support and a cash grant of $12,500. Read More »
Heading into 2016, SVP was ready to roll – three years since earning nonprofit status, we’d firmed up our internal systems. It was big work – including sorting out our most efficient internal operational structures, and adding external programming, expanding the “ways to play” for even more Boulder County nonprofits going forward. Having kept tight focus over the past few years on getting our house in order, in 2016 we decided it was time to hit the road and introduce the “new” SVP to the world around us. Find details about the work of 2016 – our programs, and culture – in our 2016 Annual Report. We’re excited to continue down this road, and take this journey together wherever it leads! Read More »
