Grants and Impact Investments

SV2 Partners pool annual contributions, and then together decide where to grant the collective funds. See how it works:

Classic Grant Rounds

Partners participate in a five to six month experiential grantmaking process, collectively deciding which nonprofits to fund.

Lightning Grant Rounds

In a condensed one-month process, Partners review a small group of potential Grantees culled from the portfolios of SV2 funder allies and choose one nonprofit to fund.

Impact Investments

Throughout the year, Partners learn more about the field of impact investing and decide which for-profit social enterprises to fund.

"What I have enjoyed most about SV2 is the exposure to expert resources and amazing nonprofits in the early childhood education area."
