The nonprofits we support are changing lives.
SVP’s job? To help them serve more people, provide more effective programs, and make an even greater impact by remembering one simple rule: stronger nonprofits deliver better results.
Seems like a no-brainer, right? You might be surprised how often the health of a nonprofit gets overlooked. Things like sound financial systems and up-to-date technology are not the stuff rallying cries are made of, but they can mean the difference between reaching 100,000 and 1.5 million kids in need. That’s why we do what we do.
SVP’s Cumulative Impact since 2001 as of 12/31/2015
| SVP direct financial contributions (grants awarded)
|| $ 779,717
|Value of volunteer hours from partners and friends||$ 685,025*|
|Indirect contributions because of introduction by SVP||$ 978,150|
|Projected operational impact from SVP-supported projects/initiatives||$ 500,000+|
|SVP grants were leveraged 377%||$ 2,942,892|
This number multiplies when looking across SVP’s global network. Since SVP’s inception, Partners in 32 cities have collectively given more than $3.8 million and countless volunteer hours.
*The value was calculated using a uniform rate of $100 per hour. Although market rates vary according to type of project, SVP chose a single rate at the low end of the range ($75–$150) to maximize ease and reliability of data collected.
