SVP Minnesota

Social Venture Partners Minnesota is a bridge between philanthropy and community. . . building relationships and investing for a just, thriving community. Since 2002, we’ve worked shoulder-to-shoulder with 60+ nonprofits through a combination of grants and consulting for greater impact.

We are a community that connects philanthropists and corporations who pool their professional skills and money with innovative nonprofits showing extraordinary impact, and together we invest in collaborative solutions to strengthen and accelerate programs for teens.

We provide grants and pro bono consulting, and collaborate to build impact.

Partners make an annual, tax-deductible contribution. Their donations are pooled to fund our nonprofit portfolio, as well as our programming and operations. These contributions are stretched even further by those who volunteer their time and skills to strengthen our Investees, SVP and the social sector at large.

Partner roles are very flexible. Some Partners simply use us as a way to make a highly leveraged gift. Others take advantage of our education sessions and peer learning opportunities. And some Partners roll up their sleeves and dig into volunteer projects. We invite you to learn more about becoming an SVP Minnesota partner.
