If you share our desire to create social change through philanthropy and our strong belief in performance-based social investment, we can help you make a difference. We help to drive real change and growth in a highly accountable manner.
SVA has Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status and therefore any donations to SVA made by individuals, corporate entities or trusts are tax-deductible.
Funding partners can help us in a number of different ways. You may choose to fund our efforts to lift education and employment participation levels in disadvantaged communities. Our initiatives range from supporting high potential non-profit ventures already delivering services in these areas, to collaborating with partners across sectors to design and implement better programs, to providing evidence of what works to help develop a more effective sector.
Alternatively some funding partners choose to support SVA’s own long term security and viability by requesting their funds are directed to the SVA Future Trust.
And there are others still, who whilst are not in a position to fund our work, are interested in investing in the new emerging asset class known as ‘Social Investment’. Through the formation of the GoodStart Childcare syndicate which successfully acquired 650 plus of the ABC Learning childcare centres, we established a precedent to prove there are investors who will invest in enterprises and accept reasonable commercial returns below conventional market rates, provided there is clear evidence of social impact. SVA played a key role in structuring the bid and raising relevant funding on behalf of the syndicate. While the Social Capital Notes in GoodStart are now fully subscribed, SVA is continuing to look for ways to link investors to the right ‘for purpose’ investment opportunities, where the return offered will be a combination of both social and financial outcomes.
