All of the staff at SV2 is amazing. But I'm not certain that you can approach them to request funding. They are a social venture philanthropy organization, and the partners make decisions about who to invite for funding.

SV2 runs a very thoughtful process. Your organization must be recommended by another funder and if selected for the next round, the original funder shares their due diligence on your organization - such a time-saver! All I needed to do to apply was submit a few pieces of supplementary information and answer some key questions. If you are selected for the lightening round, then you present about your organization and answer questions from a group of partners. This does present a few hours of prep work but overall, the work involved was must less than the typical grant.

This funder is a true collaborator and partner. They are interested in knowing the successes AND challenges faced by the organization and provide support (financial and beyond) for both.
