INVESTING IN A BETTER FUTURE FOR YOUTH IN GREATER WASHINGTON

Venture Philanthropy Partners (VPP) is a philanthropic investment organization that builds strong nonprofits and strategic networks to measurably improve the lives of youth throughout Greater Washington. Since its founding, VPP has raised and deployed more than $110 million to help vulnerable young people gain access to quality education, health care, career training and a better chance at a brighter future.

OUR APPROACH

Transformative change requires dedication and collaboration – working across sectors is challenging, but, together, we are up to the task.

Built on the principles of venture capital and best practices of philanthropy, VPP is committed to investing in youth long-term and at a scale that attempts to match the magnitude of the needs in our region. By aggregating capital, providing hands-on strategic assistance, and collaborating across sectors – businesses, nonprofits, government, and philanthropy – VPP delivers defined, measurable results that improve education, employment, and wellness outcomes for young people throughout the region.

DRIVING IMPACT

We achieve measurable results by finding new and innovative ways to disrupt the status quo for vulnerable youth.

VPP has a proven track record, stature in the community and nearly two decades of experience. Working together with the region’s most high preforming change-makers, it is building stronger organizations, networks, and systems that deliver better programs to more young people, ensuring they are ready for kindergarten, excelling in elementary through high school, graduating, succeeding in college, and securing the credentials and skills they need to pursue meaningful careers and thrive as adults.
