A powerful model for giving, Social Venture Partners fuels nonprofit success. Made up of smart people who volunteer to share their connections and give of their time, money, and mind power, Social Venture Partners propels Boston’s most promising nonprofits forward.
As Social Venture Partners’ nonprofits are infused with greatly needed resources – namely pro bono counsel and multi-year funding – they grow to serve more low-income children and families in Boston and beyond. In return, Social Venture Partners’ volunteers receive the intellectual, social, and emotional rewards that come from working together and contributing their money and minds to help others. The powerful result is real and lasting social change.
Different from more traditional philanthropy or typical corporate volunteer programs, our volunteers give it all: time, skills, networks, and their own financial contributions of at least $5,500 each year (or $2,750 for those who are early in their career). This all-in approach generates a new model for philanthropic investment: engaged philanthropy.
