strategic plan.


Board Investment Review Committee Highlights

The Board Investment Review Committee recently met to review SV2’s nine Grantees in the 2013-2014 portfolio and discuss their successes and lessons learned over the past year.  After three years of SV2 funding and support, three Grantees are graduating: Partners in School Innovation (PSI)Blue Planet Network (BPN), and Organic Farming Research Foundation (OFRF).

We would like to thank our six Lead Partners for all of their hard work in helping our graduating Grantees build capacity, think strategically through tough organizational challenges, and increase their impact: Jamie Wang and Harry Turner (PSI),  David Meader and Peter Raisbeck (BPN), and Krissy Iverson-Valk and Mary Taylor Fullerton (OFRF). 

We celebrate our graduating Grantees and encourage you to read on for highlights on the progress each organization has made during its partnership with SV2.  READ MORE

Featured resource: sobrato speaker series

A number of members from the SV2 community (Heather McLeod GrantLance Fors, and Jen Ratay) recently participated in the Sobrato Philanthropies’ Speaker SeriesBuilding Blocks for Creating Greater Impact. During this inaugural series, 305 nonprofit, philanthropic, and government leaders from 154 different organizations convened to explore how to best address the complex challenges facing the Silicon Valley region.  Watch the five stellar sessions from the speakers series here.

As prioritized in SV2's new strategic plan, we are looking for opportunities like these to leverage the resources of other thought leaders in the sector to continue to build the skillsets and effectiveness of our community members - both Grantees and Partners alike.  To that end, we'll explore, gather, and share other similarly instructive resources in the future through several different avenues such as our website, our eNews, and our future community-wide collaboration platform.  READ MORE
