Built on the principles of venture capital investing, our approach consists of four key components.Our Approach
We started with a simple idea—that relevant principles of private investing could transform the nonprofit sector.Our History
We are tireless innovators building strong organizations and strategic networks that measurably improve the lives of children and youth throughout Greater Washington.
As the year comes to a close, VPP is taking time to reflect on the work we have done this year and consider what lies ahead. 2018 has been a year full of change and growth, both in our investments and within our own organization. I am grateful for the support and partnerships that we have seen throughout this region that make this growth possible. The work of improving the lives of young people in Greater Washington is too big for just one person or organization: It requires collaboration of people across different sectors focused on the same mission.
VPP has been busy over the past few months! We’ve shown up for many events to listen and learn from our community; share our approach to philanthropy and our latest thinking; and to participate in conversations about how we can improve Greater Washington so that more young people have opportunities to succeed.
