Grants expected to range from $35,000 to $75,000 and in-kind consulting services to Boulder County, Colorado nonprofit organizations to build capacity. Mandatory information sessions will be held on December 15 and January 4. Support will be given for capacity building consulting, education, coaching, and a cash grant to build organizational strength and sustainability.
The Foundation provides the selected organizations with pro bono consulting services valued between $150,000 and $225,000 over a three-year period. The Foundation seeks to support organizations that will benefit from a long-term relationship with SVP Boulder County.
Consultations are offered in numerous areas, including strategy and planning, management, outcomes measurement and program evaluation, human resources, replication and expansion, information technology, finance and accounting, boards and governance, marketing and communications, legal, fundraising, earned income, social enterprise, and board and leadership development.
It is the intent of SVP to establish long-term partnerships with investees (typically lasting 3 years). SVP will provide varying levels of volunteer and financial resources over the life of its relationship with an investee and cash grants are specifically intended to be ‘in service of’ the time and energy it takes to work on capacity building.
The first year of funding provides an opportunity to learn about each other and begin our work on capacity building projects. Over year two, the SVP/investee partnership is strengthened and capacity building efforts move forward in earnest. By the final year of investment, SVP anticipates a focus on sustainability for the investee. Funding levels mirror this changing relationship. In general, an investee with a three-year relationship with SVP may expect to receive between $35,000 and $75,000 in funding.

SVP makes initial single-year awards with the intent of establishing longer-term partnerships with its investees (typically lasting 3 years).
At the end of each year of support, the program and organizational outcomes and relationship potential with each investee are re-evaluated for further support. (Re- investment for up to three years is likely but not automatic.)
