About the Full Circle Program

Through a competitive application process, a cohort of innovative nonprofits are selected to engage in an intensive 14-week accelerator program that combines consulting, workshops, seminars, networking and pitch event. The program is designed to grow their impact and financial sustainability. SVP Full Circle manages both a fall and spring cohort to work with a total of 10 nonprofits annually.

During each cohort, nonprofit organizations in Full Circle are each matched with teams of SVP Partners who serve as coaches. Coaches work collaboratively with each nonprofit organization throughout the program. SVP Partners are integral to the Full Circle accelerator model. Their coaching complements the accelerator curriculum by adding a layer of support to the nonprofits in the form of advanced social capital, new ideas, knowledge capital, skills-based human capital and private sector financial capital. Nonprofits that successfully complete the program also receive an unrestricted financial award.

Program Curriculum:

  • Organizational Growth Strategy
  • Financial Sustainability
  • Communication & Storytelling
  • Pitching for Impact


The Full Circle Accelerator program is facilitated by Leigh Solomon Pugliano President and CEO of the Equity | Impact Center. The 2022 Full Circle program is a collaboration between The Equity | Impact Center and Social Venture Partners (SVP) Pittsburgh.
