Social Venture Partners is a unique partnership that brings together a group of professionals who invest their time and funds to help socially-focused organizations build capacity in order address the most pressing challenges facing the city. It is based on a proven venture philanthropy model that has attracted 3,200 partners working in affiliate chapters in more than 40 cities around the world. SVP believes that by pooling partners’ time, professional expertise and funds, they can create a greater impact beyond what any one of us could achieve alone.
Their mission is to:
- Connect and engage individuals: helping them make the greatest impact with their desire to become change-makers and their philanthropic giving.
- Fund and strengthen nonprofits: helping innovative and progressive nonprofits increase their ability to create positive change in Toronto through investment and deep engagement.
They are in search of a non-for profit organization to contribute their capabilities and funds towards helping build capacity. Since their focus is on engaged philanthropy, they are targeting organizations and projects with an opportunity for a high level of engagement and impact. In addition to strategy, leadership, technology, and digital marketing, SVP will also contribute a monetary donation ($2,500 – $10,000) to better drive the capacity building initiative.
