SVP Mission & Principles
Social Venture Partners Denver positively impacts social change by:
- Strengthening local nonprofit organizations through targeted investments of our Partners' time, expertise and financial resources; and
- Providing opportunities for our Partners to become better informed leaders, and effective philanthropists.
We are Collaborative and Strategic.
We invest time, expertise and financial resources in nonprofits and create rewarding, collaborative partnerships with their team. We deeply respect the expertise of community nonprofit organizations and form relationships with organizations where we can contribute to their success.
We are Innovative and Entrepreneurial.
We think outside the red tape. We delegate decisions, resources, and authority to those closest to the work. We are all about making results happen.
We are Life-long Philanthropic Learners.
SVP Partners dig in, roll up their sleeves and learn the ins and outs, details, needs and attributes of the organization they are partnering with. They assume nothing, are not afraid to ask questions and are dedicated to offering meaningful support.
We Believe in the Power of People.
We believe in the power of collective, self-organized efforts. We’re lean on hierarchy, overhead and operating expenses. We support an open exchange of knowledge and we avoid partisan, religious or political activities.
