MAKE A BIGGER IMPACT
How partnership works
Partners make a flexible donation to join the SVP Denver Partner network. From there, we offer many highly customized ways to connect, contribute, and drive change in our community.
There are three types of Partners: businesses, individuals, and funders.
For each type of Partner, SVP Denver is centered on identifying (or even creating!) the highest-impact engagement opportunities. We work one-on-one with you to first understand your impact goals and then provide custom opportunities to work with local nonprofits and social enterprises.

What Social Mission Organizations say about their experience
“You have given us the tools needed and a good foundation for crafting and presenting a winning pitch to investors, customers and partners. Each and every one of you have been instrumental with preparing our group to create and deliver a (tailored) pitch with passion.”
Program Manager, African Leadership Group
“We gained a tremendous amount from this cohort—having external unaltered feedback from various people with key components to keep in mind has strengthened our approach greatly!”
Executive Director, Mile High Youth Corps
“I think the cohort probably saved us a year in terms of understanding what we do and why and for whom.”

How long does a Partnership last?
We typically work with Partner on an annual basis (with options to keep collaborating indefinitely!), however, there are some opportunities to create shorter term engagements. We’re flexible and want to match your impact goals and timeline.
Where does my Partnership donation go?
Your contribution to SVP Denver directly supports all of our programming. Each year, we provide thousands of hours of expert training and skills-based volunteer support to 40+ local impact organizations – all at (almost) no cost to participating organizations. We also host regular educational and social events to bring our community together to learn and connect. More Partners means we can expand our programs and offerings to make critical support and expertise accessible to more great organizations working to build a more equitable and inclusive Denver.
Is my donation tax deductible?
Yes! SVP Denver is fiscally sponsored by the Colorado Nonprofit Development Center, an established 501(c)(3) organization. So 100% of your contribution is tax deductible.
Can you tell me more about the events and training offered?
Of course! Each year, we give Partners the opportunity to join us for a variety of in-person and virtual events. They generally fall into 3 categories:
- Happy hours / socials – Simple get togethers to network and connect with other local professionals and nonprofit leaders.
- Learning sessions – We organize ‘lunch and learns’, site visits and pitch events to hear directly from social impact leaders who are driving change.
- Workshops – Opportunities to build professional / leadership skills in areas such as facilitations, communicating across difference, nonprofit coaching in more. These are hosted in collaboration with expert facilitators.
