“Three years ago, I came across a video of GenOne at the Seed20 competition. GenOne’s mission is to partner with talented, first-generation students from disadvantage backgrounds, helping them successfully navigate to and through college. This spoke to me, but the experience also provided an introduction to Social Venture Partners, a great venture philanthropy organization that anyone can join where the partners are given the opportunity to help local nonprofits with much more than just financial donations. My wife and I loved the concept and joined SVP. Fast forward three years, with the support and guidance of SVP, GenOne transformed itself from a small program under CMS to a fast-growing independent non-profit helping promising, first-generations students across Charlotte. GenOne would not be where it is today without the help of Social Venture Partners.”-Don Cleven, SVP Lead Partner for GenOne
