Apply for a Grant

Thank you for your interest in our 2019 – 2020 Investment Cycle.


We are accepting applications from July 1, 2019 to midnight on August 9, 2019.

Social Venture Partners Cincinnati invites area nonprofits to apply for two exciting grant opportunities through one application. The focus area for both is Social Innovation and the opportunities are as follows:

  • Apply to be our next Investee!  Investees may receive a total grant of $60,000 over the course of three years.  Investees also receive the strategic contribution of our partners’ time and expertise, so that the average benefit to the nonprofit is three to five times greater than the cash grants.
  • Apply for Fast Pitch 2020!  Using a technique borrowed from the venture capital and startup communities, Fast Pitch is a way to showcase and accelerate nonprofits making a difference in our community. Nonprofits get training in telling effective, inspiring stories and then compete via a 3-minute pitch.
