Review for San Diego Social Venture Partners, San Diego, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When I started looking for a meaningful volunteer experience after I retired, I found that most non-profits offered few opportunities that would allow me to contribute my professional expertise. Finally, I discovered San Diego Social Venture Partners and it has allowed me to help non-profits grow and develop in ways that have been extraordinarily satisfying. Along with funding non-profits, SDSVP partners with these agencies in capacity building help from its partners. It has been a joy for me to assist our investees (the agencies we fund for 3 years) to achieve extraordinary results -- which they do! Plus I have had the opportunity to work with the group of fabulous, fun and committed individuals -- the partners of SDSVP

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing our grantees (investees) achieve extraordinary results by partnering with us--i.e., double their budgets, triple the number of clients served, etc.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

recruit more member partners to the organization so that it could serve more non-profits.

Role:  Board Member & I serve on the Board and work with our 'selected' non-profits in board development.
