SVP International

Strengthen Nonprofits

The organizations SVP Seattle 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, SVP partners with 15-20 King County nonprofits, 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 3-5 years of funding, and they are free to spend that money where they see fit.  We ask them to report on results, not financials.  Learn more >>

Nonprofit Capacity Building

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 volunteer and paid consultants who can help amplify their impact.  Learn more >>
