Have you found yourself thinking – I enjoy giving to causes, but what can I do?
Social Venture Partners San Antonio (SVPSA) is a global network of partners aligning passion to improve their communities through giving and engagement with nonprofits. We accomplish this by pooling our financial resources and talents to provide funding and teams of mentors to help local organizations grow and thrive.
We believe that together we will build a stronger San Antonio, enabled to solve our most entrenched problems.
Since our founding in 2016, SVPSA partners have delved into discovering the core needs for families in San Antonio through educational programs and events. This helped us select our first investee, Youth Code Jam — and we saw remarkable results. With mentoring and investment from SVPSA partners, YCJ received coaching for their staff, leadership and board. They began new measurement practices and finely tuned their grant writing and presentation skills for donors. They grew in three ways – YCJ leveraged the financial gift to seek more donations and offer more programs to reach more students.
Our first investment is now inspiring us to do more, and find more investees and partners. Stay tuned as we take our next steps in 2019.
Progress is being made as Social Venture Partners San Antonio (SVPSA), continues the process to change from a Donor Advised Fund at the San Antonio Area Foundation to a tax exempt public charity organized under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service Code. The paperwork is started and SVPSA is expected to complete the transition early in 2019. Read More »
