Consulting & Management Services

Our expert nonprofit team can provide a variety of options designed to support the needs of nonprofits and foundations.

We offer tailored solutions for your organization’s unique needs and help make your philanthropy as effective as possible

Ways we work with nonprofits and foundations: 

Board support, governance and communications

Effective governance is crucial to the success of nonprofit organizations. SVCF supports private foundation and nonprofit clients to implement and realize exceptional governance practices. We can provide assistance in ongoing board management functions, such as facilitate board meetings, enact policies and best practices, and even maintain comprehensive records. We are also able to support internal communications, helping to articulate to the public your vision, goals and activities.

Grantmaking rounds

SVCF can develop and facilitate open grant rounds designed to support your commitment to philanthropy. We will help steward the submission and application review for your private foundation by designing the program, training your staff on how to evaluate and select organizations and advising on a grantmaking budget that appropriately supports organizations at a funding level they can each absorb. Our team can review applications, provide write-ups and evaluate reports. 

Needs assessment

SVCF works with nonprofits and foundations to assess their current activities with the goal of highlighting any potential compliance concerns as well as other areas for improvement and expansion. We help clients work through a needs survey and gather government documents and other key policies and procedures. We then deliver a list of these details with recommendations for next steps.
