New Grant Committees

SVP’s new grant committees are a great way to dig deeper in one of our core funding areas and get to know promising nonprofits.

Working together, a group of 10-15 SVP Partners gather for a few hours a week over six months to select the organizations that SVP will fund. These committees are looking for nonprofits that are having a great impact in our community, and are poised to take their work to the next level.

On these grant committees Partners:

  • Learn about the area they are funding (e.g. education) and about good grantmaking practices
  • Collectively review letters of inquiry and proposals, debating the merits of each organization
  • Visit those organizations, meeting staff and board members, and witnessing their work first-hand
  • Select one or two organizations to fund

Partners consistently say that participating on a grant committee is one of the most rewarding experiences at SVP, and some continue on to oversee our entire portfolio of grantees.
