In 2015, Social Venture Partners Boulder County celebrated fifteen years of strengthening nonprofits from the inside, out. Working side-by-side, SVP helps build their ‘capacity’ by empowering core skills, management practices, strategies and systems.
2015 saw SVP expand our range of programming to better serve the community’s needs. Now including training, leadership support and deep-dive consulting, a larger number of local nonprofits and leaders can access our services. Our newly released 2015 Annual Report captures the complete picture; here we offer some highlights. In 2015,
- 240 total clients across Boulder County participated in SVP’s nonprofit governance education series, BOARDS WITH BRAINS;
- 227 volunteer coaching hours were logged on behalf of clients participating in Execs Evolve, SVP’s new executive coaching program; and
- SVP Partners completed $366,400-worth of pro-bono business consulting via Catapult, SVP’s longest-running offering with ‘Investee’ nonprofits (SVP gave an additional $77,900 in cash grants to support that work).
Additionally, 1,686 volunteer hours were dedicated to organizational development this year as we turned the capacity lens on ourselves, working to materialize the thinking captured in our current strategic and sustainability plans.
These efforts and more (e.g. ongoing Partner development and programming, community advocacy, and engagement) made for an exciting time in the life of the organization! Learn more, in SVP’s 2015 Annual Report, hot off the presses.
