Heard the news? We’re thrilled to share a retrospective of our busy year, in the form of SVP Boulder County’s 2014 Annual Report. In it, you’ll find the story of SVP’s shift to nonprofit independence while also expanding capacity building programming in service of Boulder County’s nonprofits, boards, and staff.
What a year it was! We believe strong nonprofits deliver better results – so we work to bring good business practice to good causes. We focus on creating impactful change for Boulder County’s social sector, so in 2014 that meant $215,800 of SVP pro-bono nonprofit consulting (value), $89,500 of supporting cash grants, $23,310 in education sessions (value), and more.
We’re happy to team-up with our Partners (members) who gave more than 4,000 hours of their time through SVP in 2014. Read on to learn how SVP impacts our Partners’ philanthropic evolution – increasing involvement and strategic giving as a result of their immersion in the SVP conversation.
And, the work our Investees do each day makes us proud. Learn about the deep-dive engagements SVP takes on with our Investee nonprofits, which in 2014 included Boulder Institute for Psychotherapy and Research, Safe Shelter of St. Vrain Valley, Boulder County CareConnect, and Center for ReSource Conservation. Or, click through to read about SVP’s efforts with our two 2014 social enterprise pilot Investees, Intercambio Uniting Communities and Boulder Treasures.
