The Work

2. Business sustainability

SVP is funded through a combination of Partner contributions (donated on a yearly basis) and external foundations and partnerships. All new SVP chapters aim to be self-sustaining within 3-5 years.

3. Innovation

The SVP model of venture philanthropy is a hybrid model of financial donations and engaged mentoring and capacity building assistance. Partners perform extensive due diligence on NGOs before carefully selecting organizations in which to invest, and then strengthen their financial investment by providing strategic, pro bono consulting to Investees in core organizational areas to build their capacities.

"SVP is a dynamic place to learn and grow. I really believe in the mission and the venture philanthropy framework."

— Sara IDEX Fellow

"15 years of citizen philanthropy has resulted in proven impact and best practices that make this organization to a great organization to work for and extends to your working for something that is meaningful and engaging."
