Investing in Sustainable

"Alcoa Foundation created the Social Venture Initiative (SVI) to help nonprofits manage increasing needs for their services and declining available funding. The initiative is designed to help nonprofits generate their own revenue streams using their existing resources and new entrepreneurial strategies. It consists of three initial phases:  (1) Launch in 2003 with a forum of international experts in nonprofit sustainability that will be webcast to nonprofits at Alcoa locations around the world.  (2) Request for nonprofits to submit proposals that detail their plans for sustainability. And (3), reconvene nonprofit SVI grant recipients to share lessons learned and mentor other groups of nonprofits in sustainability."
