Grantee Partner Updates and Celebration Meeting

Join us on Zoom to learn more about the work and impact of our Grantee Partners and ways you can support!

Our outstanding Grantee Partners work across social impact issues including affordable housing, healthcare, equity in education, economic inclusion, and climate justice. Are you passionate about changemaking in these areas too? Join us!

In this meeting, you’ll learn more about what our Grantee Partners do, impact, examples of SV2’s support, and ways we can continue to support. We’ll celebrate community strengths, learn about challenges, and feedback for SV2.
