SVCN is the voice of the nonprofit sector in Silicon Valley. I have known this organization since its inception, served on the board in its early years, and have had the pleasure of both being a member when I was a CEO and still am as a consultant to the sector. I can count on SVCN to not only know critical issues facing our local nonprofits but to have the clout to do something about them. Their award-winning Executive Director is phenomenal and has creatively leveraged her impact by creating and empowering a strong Leadership Group comprised on other nonprofit leaders. SVCN is a model organization for public policy advocacy, resource development, and leadership development. I can't imagine our community without them.

SVCN has played a leading role in helping local nonprofits understand, negotiate, and succeed at being a part of the budget process at the county and city levels. Without this leadership, millions of dollars worth of vital human services in Santa Clara County would have been lost in recent years. Throughout the year SVCN also brings the nonprofit community together with important resources and the information they need to succeed at their missions. This is what dedication and leadership looks like.
