Throughout the world, the organizations SVP partners with are tackling some of our society’s most entrenched problems – and they are ready to take their work to the next level.
They’ve recognized ways that their organizations could be stronger, and are working with SVP to make that happen. In any given year, affiliates across the SVP network are engaged with hundreds of local nonprofits and social change initiatives providing two kinds of support.
Multi-Year, General Operating Support
We believe that change takes time, and that those closest to the work are best equipped to make important decisions. Our Investees can depend on multiple years of funding, and they are free to spend that money where they see fit to build and strengthen their capacity. We ask them to report on results, not financials.
It’s not sexy, but things like sound financial systems, effective board governance, and up-to-date technology can make the difference between serving 200 and 500 kids in need. That’s why we strengthen organizations from the inside out – matching them with SVP Partner volunteers and paid consultants who can help amplify their impact.
How These Fit Together
