What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

San Diego nonprofit organizations don’t have enough resources to accomplish all their goals and San Diego philanthropists don’t always feel satisfied with their fiscal contributions to nonprofits. To bridge this disconnect, SDSVP connects local nonprofits with resources via their network of partners and fosters a community of San Diegans who feel empowered by their philanthropic choices and have a space to share their talents.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

San Diego SVP works towards building a network of partners who independently can support nonprofits with their skills, money, and time. Guiding and supporting philanthropists to effectively and satisfactorily giving of their time, talent, treasure, and ties. This leads to capacity building for local nonprofits in productive and useful ways. We strive to provide the best resources for nonprofits, both financial and skills-based.

SVP educates and enables partners and prospective partners to become more informed and effective donors. Learning occurs through our capacity-building programs and through workshops and seminars hosted by SVP. SVP also actively cultivate relationships with like-minded individuals and organizations in order to connect and collaborate to support positive social change and amplify our impact. We do this through networking events, partner socials, expanding social media and PR capability.

With a dedicated staff of 3, 372 partners, and over 108,000 volunteer hours SVP is highly skilled in connecting partners and nonprofits with the appropriate pathways. In addition we have cultivated strong ties with local businesses and individuals who support our work from outside the organization.

SVP has a network of 372 partners who strategically serves multiple nonprofits at once. Each year we give grant money to a new nonprofit which is invited into the SVP community as an “investee” with not just money but also resources and support. Nonprofits who are not formal investees through our grant process also come to SVP for specific resources like support in board governance, financial planning, volunteer management, and much more. Next we are working to expand and diversify our partner network in order to better serve our investees.
