SVN International Corporation continues to look for ways of improving our business that embrace Corporate Social Responsibility. In 2005, SVN International Corporation launched the SVN® Legacy Foundation, a philanthropy that applies investment principles to non-profit organizations to help transform them from dependency to self-sufficiency. To accomplish this, the SVN® Legacy Foundation makes loans to non-profit organizations for their social enterprises—earned-income businesses undertaken by non-profits to generate revenue in support of its social mission.
Every year thousands of non-profit programs are shut down due to lack of funding. Many organizations, while helping people to become self-sufficient, do not have the same goal for their own organization. Instead, they are continually dependent on donations to survive. Traditional giving fails to leverage much-needed capital and perpetuates ongoing dependency.
The SVN® Legacy Foundation is dedicated to helping such organizations become self-sufficient by providing their social enterprises with access to capital and credit. This will enable the non-profit organizations to not only survive but to thrive without dependency on government grants or private donations.
What will your legacy be? Helping a child to leave a troubled background and get a college degree? Helping a struggling mother to become economically independent enough to buy a home to raise her children? Support the Legacy Foundation and let the dreams continue for generations to come.
