Los Angeles Social Venture Partners
Los Angeles Social Venture Partners (LASVP) works with nonprofits to help strengthen them and help them to deliver on their missions. Through this work and other educational activities, LASVP expands the philanthropic capacity of its partner organizations.
Each Social Venture Partner makes an annual contribution of $5,000 to LASVP. There is also the option of contributing $1,500 as an Associate Partner. The organization pools these funds for investment in local nonprofits, but the core of its philanthropy is engagement. The partners give of themselves—their time, their expertise, and their business contacts—to help the organization’s nonprofit investees achieve growth goals that they often thought were impossible.
LASVP, which currently has 75 partners, is part of Social Venture Partners International, a network of 27 city-based Social Venture Partners organizations in North America and Japan.
Los Angeles Social Venture Partners annually offers the Innovation Fast Pitch, which provides cash awards to innovative nonprofits demonstrating positive impact.
