The SVP Sacramento Investment opportunity is a yearlong partnership with the potential for multi-year unrestricted funding. In 2016, SVP will focus its philanthropic contributions, volunteer and in-kind support towards capacity-building efforts of organizations engaged in transforming education for youth in the region. Their ultimate goal is to help build and expand successful, sustainable nonprofit organizations through multi-year support and partnership.
Nonprofit organizations will first complete a two stage application process, followed by a required site visit for selected finalists.
