About the Full Circle Program

Social Venture Partners (SVP) Pittsburgh and The Equity | Impact Center are excited to announce the launch of the 2023 Full Circle Nonprofit Accelerator program for small and mid-sized nonprofits in the Pittsburgh region!

Full Circle is a proven capacity-building program designed to improve organizational efficiency, program implementation, and financial sustainability, and increase overall impact.
