SVP selects Jordan Community Resource Center as its next Investee and Cleveland Kids’ Book Bank for time-only engagement
Social Venture Partners (SVP), the philanthropic venture fund that supports nonprofit organizations in Northeast Ohio, has awarded its fifteenth multi-year grant to its newest Investee – Jordan Community Resource Center. Having selected Jordan Community Resource Center (JCRC) from a pool of 24 local nonprofit applicants, SVP will offer an initial $15,000 unrestricted grant that is further leveraged by SVP’s commitment to provide volunteer consulting expertise, an essential component of its approach to strengthening regional nonprofits.
SVP’s Board of Directors elects Dick Cahoon as president, Evan Ishida as vice-president, and Bishara Addison as secretary; re-elects Barry Doggett as treasurer; and welcomes new member Chann Fowler-Spellman and returning members Shilpa Kedar, Marcia Levine, Laura Malone, and Joyce Shaw.
