SVP is bold and bright—and we look a little bit different in each community. We invite you to get engaged in a personal way as you explore this website by selecting your own colors!
SVP Full Circle is a multi-faceted capacity-building and mentoring program for a cohort of 16 innovative nonprofit leaders from 8 organizations. Full Circle allows SVP to advance its role as a catalyst for nonprofits to innovate, use better business practices, and explore diversified financial sustainability options. It builds upon our success at cultivating effective philanthropists, strengthening nonprofits’ capacity and social impact, and investing in collaborative solutions that leverage resources across sectors.
In this 4- to 6-month program, each nonprofit in the cohort is matched with two SVP mentors who serve as executive coaches and work closely with them throughout this process. Participants engage with SVP Partners and collaborators in a series of workshops covering topics such as strategy mapping, communications/messaging, and financial diversification planning. They gain public visibility through networking events, topic discussion forums, and Think Tankathons, but also have access to one-on-one office hours with Full Circle leaders for personalized support.
Full Circle, as its name implies, is fueled by the support of leaders and institutions from across the community. If you would like to contribute ideas, questions, expertise, or resources, please email SVP Executive Director, Elizabeth Visnic at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you, and hope that you will join us in accelerating social good through Allegheny County.
