This just in from our friends over at Social Venture Partners – Seattle.

Social Venture Partners (SVP) is a network of accomplished individuals who combine financial contributions and professional skills with a passion for philanthropy. Leveraging our collective expertise and resources, we partner with and strengthen promising nonprofits for maximum community impact.To ensure a strong, healthy network of people, SVP continually strives to increase the diversity of backgrounds, perspectives, and cultures represented in the organization. In this spirit, SVP invites interested individuals in King County to apply for a two‐year “Brainerd Fellowship.” We wish to attract people that couldn’t otherwise make the required financial commitment and that will add value to and find personal reward from SVP’s work. Past fellows have added a great deal to the work of SVP, particularly serving on grant committees where they brought perspective and insight that would otherwise have been lacking.This two‐year Fellowship is intended to widen and strengthen the circle of partners involved in SVP. This fellowship is named in honor of SVP’s co‐founder, Paul Brainerd, and reflects his spirit and ethos. The fellowships are funded by current Partners, and cover the annual $6,000 partner contribution.
