WHAT IS A SPARK TEAM?
Spark Teams elevate a nonprofit's organizational capacity through customized support and generous commitment of SVP Partners and their skills. Our Spark Teams are personalized teams of professionals who bring a wide variety of business skills and experienced perspectives to help nonprofits solve organizational problems. This means that they can help address many pain points by looking at strategic planning, marketing, board development, financial planning and much, much more.
Due to high demand, we are only considering Spark Teams
for organizations that meet the following criteria:
501(c)(3) or fiscally sponsored by a 501(c)(3)
Annual budget of $100K or more
At least one full-time, paid staff member

HOW DO SPARK TEAMS HELP?
SVP staff will follow-up on a Spark Team request with a discovery call to consult with you on assessing your nonprofit's needs. Depending on the outcomes of this call, a request could be best served by a simple brainstorming meeting with Partners, or it may require a team of Partners dedicated to specific projects determined in the discovery call. Spark Team help (and all other SVP consulting) is pro bono.
