How do you decide as a member of the Boulder Community where to invest your time, talents, and financial resources to make an impact in our nonprofit community? With over 1,400 nonprofits registered in Boulder County the options are nearly endless. For us it means strengthening the business of nonprofits no matter their mission; making sure they have the tools for successful impact.

Our company, Emily Davis Consulting, became a partner with Social Venture Partners Boulder Countythree years ago because we deeply believe in the model of capacity building they provide for a variety of nonprofit businesses. SVP engages community, donors, business professionals, and nonprofits to work side-by-side to address Boulder County needs.

SVP does more than serve one organizational mission. It strengthens our entire nonprofit community in a way no other does. The impact is here, in Boulder County and bringing together wonderfully strategic and brilliant people. They do this not only with the nonprofits they serve as “investees,” but also through important educational opportunities for nonprofit leadership like their Boards with Brains trainings.

If you are a nonprofit interested in becoming an investee, learn more here. If you want to learn more about becoming a partner (you, your family, your company) click here.  Maybe you have other skills and talents that would be a good fit for SVP’s ongoing education; contact SVP Boulder County to find out more.

Social Venture Partners (SVP) catalyzes and supports the collective action of community members by leveraging human and financial capital to enable local nonprofits to excel in meeting community need.
