Why does SV2 have Volunteer Leaders?

- SV2 Partners make the decisions about where to award grants and how to get involved with our Grantees. Each year, we select Partners who are experienced and willing to lead their peers in the grantmaking process and in the Grantee advising process.

What do Grant Round Leaders do?

- Each year, Grant Round Leaders help "steer" our grantmaking groups through the process of selecting Grantees.

- Grant Round Leaders facilitate monthly meetings, after planning each agenda with staff.

What do Lead Partners do?

- Lead Partners serve as the link between SV2 and each Grantee during our three-year grants. 

- As the grant begins, Lead Partners help the Grantee go through a self-assessment process and set goals for the Grant Agreement.

- Lead Partners check in with Grantees monthly to provide support and to help link Grantees to the capacity-building resources they might need.
