As our 2020 grant cycle starts, we’re hosting two Investee Grant Info Sessions (January 15 from 11 AM – noon, and January 16th from 2-3 PM) at the Accelerator Centre to share the information you need to know to assess if Social Venture Partners is the right fit for partnering with your charitable organization.NonprofitSVPWR Event
This spring, we polled the partnership to see what topics Partners would be interested in learning about, and people expressed an interest in learning about the impact of opioid abuse in our community. We’ve assembled a stellar panel of community leaders from a range of experiences, and hope you can join us (virtually) on Sept. 24!NonprofitSVPWR Event
SVP Teens invites you, your family members, and your friends to attend their latest virtual fundraiser, the SVP Teens Lockdown Learning Fundraiser!
Join us on October 10 from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Each of these workshops is planned and led by a group of SVP Teens or an industry professional outside the organization. The event is split into two sessions, allowing you to choose two workshops during the event.
You may join any two workshops from the six listed below:
- Coding: An eye-opening session where attendees new to coding will get to write their first ever computer program using code blocks in Scratch
- Yoga: A calming session of yoga to relax from the stress of work or school
- Science: An informative science experiment demonstrating the difference in the density of different types of liquids
- Crafts: A hands-on workshop on how to make simple origami (the art of paper folding) figures
- Baking: An instructional session on how to make delicious brownies
The workshops will take place on PublicSquare, and a Q&A area is available on the platform if attendees have questions at any point.
Once you sign up, you’ll receive an email with the livestream link closer to the date of the event! You will get to choose which two workshops to participate in on October 10.
Participation is by donation. The minimum recommended donation amount is $5.00, and 100% of the proceeds will be contributed to the 2021 SVP Teens Community Grant. Curious? Learn about our 2020 grant recipient, Child Witness Centre.
