Social Venture Partners seek out innovative, growing nonprofits that are making a measurable difference in the lives of families in San Antonio. We provide funding, mentoring, and expertise to expand capacity and sustainability so those we support can do more. We choose those that have the most potential – we stand beside them so their success is also our success.
We connect with a global network of individuals in 33 cities and 7 countries, sharing ideas and new methods, so we are always learning and aligning our passion to improve our communities.
We believe that together we will build a stronger future, enabled to solve our most entrenched problems.
Since our founding in 2016, SVPSA has delved into discovering the core needs for families in San Antonio through educational programs and events. This helped us select our 2017-2018 investee, Youth Code Jam — and we saw remarkable results. With mentoring and investment from SVPSA partners, YCJ received coaching for their staff, leadership and board. They began new measurement practices and fine-tuned their grant writing and presentation skills for donors. They grew in several ways – YCJ leveraged the financial gift to hire part-time staff, update their measurement processes, and are now offering more programs to reach more students at a lower price per student.
Our next round of grants and investee selection is taking place right now, with work beginning this summer.
