Grant Description

Grants and in-kind support to Arizona nonprofit organizations in eligible regions for organizational development and capacity building. The program is intended for organizations that create measurable change by placing a focus on both parents and children. Eligible applicants are those located in the Greater Tucson area.

SVP is building a robust and vibrant community of nonprofits that will create measurable 2Generation (2Gen) change. 2Gen is an innovative approach that focuses on both parents and their children, so that together they may unleash their full potential. 

In 2021, SVP launched a 2Gen Nonprofit Collaboration bridging the gap between the early childhood learning community and nonprofits focused on post-secondary education and adult job attainment. Together with our nonprofit partners, we are creating a 2Gen referral system to provide a continuum of services for families with young children, providing the intervention and learning opportunities children need, along with the resources caregivers and parents need to stabilize their lives. The current members of the 2Gen Nonprofit Collaboration are: Make Way for Books, JobPath, and Interfaith Community Services. 

Over the next 3-5 years, SVP will expand the Collaboration to include 8-12 nonprofit organizations.

Informed by the current members of the 2Gen Nonprofit Collaboration, SVP Tucson will focus its 2022 investments in the following areas:

  • Economic supports and asset building that provide a scaffold for families as they work to develop skills that lead to better jobs and long-term financial stability
  • Post-Secondary readiness and job attainment programs for parents
  • K-12 wrap around services and social/emotional support for school-aged children
  • Parenting skills, social capital and networks that build on the strength and resilience of families

SVP’s capacity building work may include:

  • Strategic planning
  • Leadership development and coaching
  • Board development and governance
  • Change management
  • Program design and evaluation
  • Financial management
  • Marketing and communications
  • Fund development
  • Policy Development
  • Legal affairs
