Impact and Programs

Accomplishments In Fiscal Year 2020, the SCVF granted $7.3 M through donor advised, agency, scholarship, and field of interest funds. The SCVF supported local nonprofits by 1) implementing foundation-led competitive grant programs granting over $600,000 to 128 organizations and 2) providing nonprofit professional development through the Consultants in Service (CIS) program. CIS matches volunteer consultants, who donate time and expertise on a variety of topics, with area nonprofit need. In FY2020, eleven nonprofits were matched with volunteer consultants. In addition, the SCVF took CIS on the road offering three professional development workshops; close to 70 nonprofit leaders, from across the region, attended the sessions. SCVF hosted the Conversations of the Valley luncheon series; these events are an example of SCVF’s work as a convener, connector, and collaborator. The programs feature speakers on a wide range of topics and are designed to strengthen community connections while raising awareness around issues facing our region. In 2020, SCVF hosted a compelling four-part-series recognizing and celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day.
Current Goals In FY21, the SCVF will finalize our COVID-19 Response Fund grantmaking by granting over $500,000 to organizations focused on housing, utilities, and transportation. In addition, the music education field of interest fund will grant over $30,000 to area schools seeking to enhance the quality of school-based music education programs; the Valley Arts Initiative will grant approximately $50,000 to area arts organizations; and, in collaboration with our Affiliates, the SCVF will launch a spring grantmaking program with the goal of granting approximately $100,000 to organizations addressing mental health. The Consultants in Service (CIS) Program will launch CIS: On the Screen – a virtual professional development workshop series that will address what nonprofits can work on now as they consider potential long-term organizational changes. Sessions include: Emerging funding streams for nonprofits, Running an Effective Virtual Board Meeting, Building an Effective Board, and Strategic/Scenario Planning. The Conversations of the Valley FY21 is focused on “Racial Justice – Listening and Learning”. This four-part Zoom series speaks to the fact that many in the Valley have not had first-hand experience with the biases faced by our Black and Indigenous neighbors, so may not see racial justice as a pressing issue for our region. Listening is the first step to acknowledging and understanding these unique experiences.
