Powerful Relationships. Thriving Communities. Engaged Philanthropy.

Social Venture Partners Minnesota is a powerful model for giving. We fuel nonprofit success by connecting smart people who volunteer their brain power, money, and time with the Twin Cities’ most promising nonprofits.

We carefully select small and mid-sized nonprofits having extraordinary impact and with the potential to have much more. As we infuse them with greatly needed resources, they grow to serve more low-income, underserved teens with programs that truly work.


Building powerful relationships and thriving communities through the amplifying impact of engaged philanthropy.


We elevate the lives of underserved teens by turbo-charging transformational social enterprises and philanthropic leaders.
