Apply for a Grant

SVP Tucson’s 2023 nonprofit investment cycle is now open! SVP is building a robust and vibrant community of nonprofits that will create measurable 2Generation (2Gen) change. Together with our nonprofit partners, we are creating a 2Gen referral system to provide a continuum of services for families with children, providing the intervention and learning opportunities children need, along with the resources caregivers and parents need to stabilize their lives. We build our nonprofit partners into stronger organizations and introduce new solutions to make our community a better place!

If you are an organization who works with children and/or adults and is committed to making a 2Gen impact in our community, we encourage you to apply for this incredible opportunity. We are looking for programs focused in one or more of the following areas for this year’s investment cycle:

  • Economic supports and asset building that provide a scaffold for families as they work to develop skills that lead to better jobs and long-term financial stability
  • Focus on mental and emotional health of children and parents (including grandparents if they are primary caregivers) to address the cognitive effects of poverty, trauma and chronic stress which may include peer support groups, coaching, skills development, counseling, or therapy
  • Access to social capital and networking experiences that build on the strength and resilience of families by providing opportunities for inter-family relationships
