Introducing: Lightning Rounds

This lighter touch, shorter duration grantmaking experience is designed to reach a more diverse set of Partners, especially those who are unable to regularly attend traditional Grant Rounds.

They will take place over one month, and will involve individual work and two group meetings. The first pilot will take place in April with a small, targeted cohort of Partners.  If you would like to learn more or sign up to participate, email

Impact Investing: Success Stories from the Field

Join SV2 in South Africa

Given the positive feedback from SV2’s first pilot international trip (read about it here), SV2 is pursuing a second trip this summer. Partners selected South Africa as our destination! The trip will take place from Saturday, July 25, 2015 to Sunday, August 2, 2015, and it will be open to SV2 Partners and their families, including children who have completed their eighth grade year or higher.

ThinkImpact's award-winning, design thinking-based curriculum will provide a full-immersion experience focused on social impact and innovation. The trip will include time in Cape Town to learn about South Africa's history and culture, as well as to build a foundation in the ecosystem surrounding heath, education, technology, and social innovation. Participants will travel to a rural community where they will participate in a village home stay and work side-by-side with community members to help craft potential solutions to community challenges.

ThinkImpact is currently finalizing the budget. Please email Elizabeth Dodson, Director of Grantmaking, by Monday, Feb. 9 to sign up for an information session and receive precise trip cost information as soon as it's available.
