Grant Description
In-kind donations of consulting services to Texas nonprofit and for-profit social impact organizations in eligible areas to build capacity and improve organizational effectiveness. In addition, one organization will receive a $2,500 prize. The goal of the program is to help organizations deliver effective programs, fulfill their mission, and advance social innovation in North Texas.

Social Venture Partners (“SVP”) builds powerful relationships among people who want to give back and the social impact organizations that make change possible. SVP is a diverse group of individual donors (“Partners”) – business people, entrepreneurs, and social impact leaders – who combine their skills, resources, and networks to help social impact organizations succeed. SVP focuses its philanthropy on capacity building, and work with you to strengthen your organization and increase your impact in the community.

To be a viable candidate you should have at a minimum:
An executive director, a board, revenue approaching $100K or more, be in good standing with the IRS, be an organization that does not proselytize or require the following of a particular faith.

• A shared understanding of the importance of building internal organizational capacity to achieve their mission;
• A clearly articulated mission for the organization’s programs and infrastructure;
• Strong, stable and committed leadership;
