What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

MVP is committed to working on projects that enhance the quality of life in Madison. We intend to partner with nonprofits, small businesses and individuals. MVP also appreciates all the work the city does to continually improve the quality of life in Madison and we recognize that the city is only able to stretch their funding dollars so far. That is why we, as an organization, choose to work on leveraging ongoing city projects with philanthropic support to improve those projects. The common thread shared by community nonprofits and local government is a determination to use our respective resources to find solutions to meet today’s challenges and support our community. When we weave our resources together, the fabric of the solution is stronger. MVP appreciates the past support of our stakeholders in the City of Madison and looks forward to continuing to work together to not only meet the needs of our community, but to surpass them.

Charting impact

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

Madison Visionary Partners (MVP) is a haven for hope. Its mission embodies hope. MVP will partner with city government, health leaders, nonprofit organizations, and community business and civic leaders to collaborate on how best to assess and meet ever-increasing needs — needs that are changing almost by the minute. Our goal is to build the foundation for creating a cohesive community response not only to any immediate crises but to the many needs in Madison. A unified community network will be essential in Madison in the months and years to come and MVP has started the work that can bring all of those elements together to create successful projects that benefit the community of Madison.

We will partner with city government, local nonprofits, schools, businesses, and individual to act as catalyst for philanthropy in our community. That community support of donations, in kind giving, and volunteerism will enable the City of Madison to have successful projects in the community that will improve the quality of life in Madison.

MVP seeks to support the City of Madison in the following key areas:
• Lead a broad-base community coalition to support needs in Madison
• Make philanthropy affordable through Fiscal Sponsorship
• Continue to respond to the COVID crisis
• Support projects that enhance the quality of life in Madison

With an active volunteer board and a dedicated administrator MVP will dedicate its time and activities to philanthropy in our community.

Nonprofit organizations play a vital role in building healthy communities by providing critical services that contribute to economic stability and mobility. They also strengthen communities in other important ways. Frequently, nonprofit leaders are the voice of the people they serve. Thanks to the combination of strong community relationships and intimate local knowledge, these organizations often understand better than anyone else their communities’ needs and the best ways to meet them. Strong, well-resourced nonprofits that are connected to the decision-making infrastructure in their communities can catalyze growth and opportunity. And, in an era of growing needs and shrinking government resources, nonprofits are being asked to fill that gap to help support community needs.

Broad Base Community Coalition
Continuing the work we started with Collaborating 4Community and Madison River of Hope, MVP will work to partner with stakeholders in Madison to create a “united front” of response to the COVID pandemic and to push forward community projects such as the new Senior/Community center.
Fiscal Sponsorship
In the past nine months, MVP has acted as a fiscal sponsor for the eCyber grant, Boeing contribution to the SRO school program, donation of a police car to the City of Madison, and the ATM/HudsonAlpha mask donation.
MVP will expand its fiscal sponsorship program not only for the City of Madison, which will receive a reduced administrative rate, but for other organizations and individuals who need fiscal help to get donor dollars to Madison projects.

COVID crisis
MVP was able to nimbly change its short-term priorities as soon as the COVID pandemic hit our nation.
• We immediately convened an emergency session between nonprofits serving Madison and outlined a list of community needs.
• Partnering with organizations such as Rotary Club of Madison and Madison City Schools we were able to facilitate the donation of cleaning supplies, graduation cap and gowns, PPE and even Mother’s Day cards.
• We created and implemented a communication outreach plan with the message of unity within our community during these frightening times.

• We secured a PPP loan to make sure we could continue our work to support the City.
• We created the Madison River of Hope project and recruited Madison stakeholders to participate. The project raised over $10,000 and broad-based community support.
MVP will expand its communications plan to ensure that a cohesive message of unity and trust in each other reaches all our stakeholders as we continue to work to meet the ever-changing needs the COVID pandemic makes in our community.
Projects
During the past nine months MVP was able to successfully plan, build and complete two projects for the City of Madison.
Downtown Gazebo
• MVP successfully secured a $5,000 grant from PPG to renovate and decorate the historic downtown Gazebo. MVP’s fiscally responsible approach to the renovation project substituted volunteer labor thus creating a $1,387.33 surplus.
• The Gazebo project created a beautiful Holiday display for the historic downtown and garnered positive community and media attention.
Madison River of Hope
MVP’s quick response to our local pandemic needs allowed us to create a project that would normally take 6 months to year to plan in two weeks.
• MVP recruited an unprecedented partnership between nonprofits serving Madison, city government, local businesses, and local citizens. (Madison Visionary Partners (MVP), the City of Madison, Rotary Club of Madison, Madison Chamber of Commerce, Madison City Schools, the Madison Chapter of American Legion, Just Serve.org, local businesses, volunteers, and local citizens)
• Madison River of Hope created a stunning visual display of almost 3,000 pain
