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.
On Saturday, April 6, VPP will host “All Stars Night” at MGM National Harbor. Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks joins as the Honorary Chair of the event, which will honor three leaders who have helped build the Ready for Work: Champions for Career- and College-Ready Graduates in Prince George’s County initiative and have served as model partners: The Honorable Rushern L. Baker III, Kaiser Permanente, and Milton Peterson and the Peterson Family.
