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.

SVP Dallas will consider making a financial grant or investment only to social impact organizations that are selected as an advisee and complete at least one successful capacity building project.

Term of Contract:

Typically, advisees will stay in the portfolio for no more than 1 year.

• 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;
