Spring 2023 Impact Programs

We provide nonprofit and for-profit organizations dedicated to building a better Metro Denver with free training and strategic consulting services. Application deadline is January 20, 2023!

Expert-led Training

We make expert-led trainings accessible for social mission organizations that don’t have the resources to hire expert consultants or invest in expensive capacity-building programs.

In these programs, you will join a group of local impact organizations for online/in-person sessions that will help you level up in a fun, fast-paced program with proven results. Each cohort and workshop is facilitated by a subject matter expert and social impact organizations are matched with local professionals from SVP Denver’s Partner network who provide additional support and third-party feedback along the way.

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.”

Lori Collier

“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!”

Brigid McRaith
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.”
