October 14th, 2017:
SVP TEENS met at University of the Pacific Sacramento Campus for their 2017 funding decision. Overall in 2016/2017, SVP Kids and Teens visited 7 nonprofits and fundraised $1400 to donate to local nonprofits that they visited over the course of the year. The Teens reached out to the nonprofits we visited this year with a request for proposal (RFP) outlining how the organization would use the money if they were chosen for funding. Teens reviewed the RFPs and discussed how their money could have the most impact. Teens also decided how to split up the money, this year opting to donate $1,000 to Society for the Blind and $200 each to Red Rover and to The Food Literacy Center.
Special THANK YOU to University of the Pacific for hosting our meeting and to the incredible nonprofits we had the opportunity to visit this year!
