Investing In A Better World for Children
Since DSVP was launched in 2000, we have invested more than $2 million with our investees and provided thousands of hours of volunteer time and expertise to those nonprofit organizations. The vision of the founders was to build a philanthropic community using a model that leveraged venture capital practices. This model became known as venture philanthropy. Key tenets of this approach to philanthropy include long-term, highly engaged investments of money, resources, and business expertise to develop the capacity and sustainability of local nonprofits.
