Does your nonprofit focus on helping all kids graduate from high school ready to succeed in college or a career? Do you work with families and communities to position students for success? Do you want to take your work to the next level? Maybe we can help!

SVP is awarding one $30k grant with the intention of developing a multi-year partnership to help strengthen a local nonprofit. Our approach is a little different from other funders in that we focus specifically on capacity building. Here’s what we provide:

  • Up to 4 years of general operating support ($120k total)
  • Tools to assess the internal systems that help you achieve your mission (e.g. financial management, communications, human resources)
  • Skilled volunteers and paid consultants to help you strengthen those systems for greater impact
  • A commitment to working in partnership with you

Interested? Letters of Inquiry Are Due November 9, 2017.

Please review our K-12 Education Grant Guidelines and complete the 2018 LOI Fact Sheet. Be sure to read more about our funding model and how to apply for a grant.

SVP is hosting four info sessions for potential grantees on October 4, 12, 18, and 26, plus a webinar on September 22. Register here.

    Hello! I am not able to open the link to “grant guidelines” for K-12 Education grants. Would you possibly be able to forward these guidelines via a pdf or word document?
