HOW DO WE HELP NONPROFITS?
GRANTS / INVESTEES
Organizations that receive our unrestricted, multi-year grants are called “Investees.” Along with the monetary support, Investees receive the dedicated volunteer support of a team of SDSVP Partners throughout the multi-year period of our investment. Together, we work to strengthen the business side of our Investees and help them become skillful, strategic and sustainable.
Even if you do not receive our financial support and become an “Investee,” we might be able to help. Any nonprofit, working in any area, can request Spark Team support. These are teams of our volunteer Partners with a specific skill set. This includes, finance, HR, strategy, impact investing, marketing, board development and animal welfare. We start with a brainstorming meeting and if our volunteers are capable and available to help further, we provide more assistance.
Monday's Matter provides an opportunity to learn about a rotating issue facing our community and gives help to two nonprofits working within this issue along the way. This event occurs once a month on either the first or third Monday. Each Monday's Matter will start with two nonprofits sharing about their inspiring work and end with a pro-bono consulting workshop focused on a specific capacity-building challenge.
