Social Venture Partners (SVP) Tucson
Grants of up to $25,000 to Arizona nonprofit organizations that address social problems in eligible regions for long-term capacity-building projects. Funding is intended to support nonprofits that strive to alleviate poverty and remove barriers to success for children, youth, and family in the Greater Tucson Area. Grants are unrestricted and may be used for any general operating purpose.
SVP aims to significantly reduce or eliminate family vulnerabilities for economic security and stability, breaking the cycle of poverty, using the 2-Gen approach. The 2-Gen framework lays out three core components needed to address this issue:
To achieve this, SVP invests in nonprofits and works in partnership with them to co-create and implement solutions. SVP’s capacity building work may include:
SVP Tucson will build this “community of nonprofits” to bridge the gap(s) between the early childhood learning community and nonprofits focused on adult job attainment. This 2-Gen network will provide a continuum of services for families with young children, providing the intervention and learning opportunities children need, along with the resources parents need in order to stabilize their lives. SVP Tucson wants to work with non-profit organizations that have an effective strategy and model that impacts the areas of early childhood development/education and/or adult education/training.
