Support SVP Investees
Below is a list the SVP Investees who are in need of support due to the impact from COVID-19. Please consider donating and increase your support. Many Investees are looking for quick volunteer advice and resources on things such as coordinating remote teams, IT and computer advice and set-up, crisis communications and marketing, financial planning and scenario planning. Please contact Mike Quinn at Mikeq@svpseattle.org to learn more about any of the emerging needs of Investees.
