Become a Partner

You want to put a dent in the world, but you know you’ll only get so far on that journey alone. That’s what Social Venture Partners is for.

It starts with you. And it can begin today.  Social Venture Partners Cincinnati is accepting new partners!

We can’t define the change you’re searching for, but we will help you achieve it. We’ll connect you to the people and organizations that share your passion, and together we will amplify your impact.

How It Works

Social Venture Partners Cincinnati offers several options to join the partnership.  Partners make a minimum, tax-deductible, annual contribution of $6,000 for families, $3,000 for individuals or $1,500 for young professionals (<35). Donations are pooled to fund the local nonprofits Social Venture Partners supports as well as our programming and operations. These contributions are stretched further by those who volunteer their time and skills to strengthen our Investees, Social Venture Partners, and the social sector at large. Our hands-on approach leverages our financial contributions by a ratio of 4:1. This is what differentiates Social Venture Partners from other funders.

Partner roles are very flexible. Some Partners use Social Venture Partners as a way to make a highly leveraged gift, others take advantage of our education sessions and peer learning opportunities, and some roll up their sleeves and dig into volunteer projects.
