SVP provides multi-year financial support to the non-profit organizations (Investees) we work with.
Our Investees can access 3-5 years of funding*, dedicated to helping them achieve THEIR most important priorities. We believe that change takes time and those closest to the work are best equipped to make important decisions.
Unlike most grants non-profits receive that are restricted, the funds from SVP Vancouver are flexible – based on what the organization needs. We believe that certain restrictions (for example, requiring funds to be spent on a specific program) may not allow for the greatest gains to be realized by the organization as a whole (see the video below for more on this subject).
*Investees must re-qualify for funding each year by making satisfactory progress toward stated objectives.
