Honorary Chair, Award Recipient Named for SVP Philanthroparty

svp

Sixteen years ago, Social Venture Partners Dallas created North Texas’ first and continuous social impact venture fund. The purpose of the SVP fund is to invest in entrepreneurial organizations that are being built to provide solutions to some of our most pressing social problems.

Our partners who invest in the fund with their dollars, time and professional talents, represent the greatness that makes up Dallas’ entrepreneurial and philanthropic culture.

This year’s SVP Dallas Philanthroparty on April 9 will be a chance to celebrate the great work that has been accomplished through engaged philanthropy and, more importantly, it will be a chance to celebrate the people that make it all happen.

We are thrilled that this year’s Honorary Chair is Jorge Baldor.

Baldor epitomizes entrepreneurship and philanthropy and we are honored to have him join our celebration.

Baldor is the co-founder and president of ResidentCheck, a leading national tenant background screening service. He is the inspiration behind and founder of the Latino Center for Leadership Development. Baldor serves as Vice-Chair of the Board of the World Affairs Council DFW and is on the Board of SMU Hispanic Alumni.

Baldor epitomizes entrepreneurship and philanthropy and we are honored to have him join our celebration.

That celebration includes an award ceremony and a chance to publicly say thank you to some of our great partners.

At first, it may seem odd that an organization that is all about investing in new models will be giving an award to a representative of one of the world’s most traditional institutions, that is, until you know that it is Anne Motsenbocker of JP Morgan Chase. She will receive The SVP Corporate Partner Innovation Award.

The award recognizes a corporate leader who advances the cause of philanthropy and innovation throughout the culture of their organization.

Motsenbocker was the first corporate leader in Dallas to champion the SVP skills-based volunteerism program known as Partner and Prosper.

The program provides employees a vehicle to use their professional skills and talents to help grow the capacity of social enterprises in our community. JPMorgan Chase employees used their varied skills to work on projects with Education is Freedom, WiNGS and United Way of Fort Worth.

Motsenbocker was the first corporate leader in Dallas to champion the SVP skills-based volunteerism program known as Partner and Prosper.

In addition to being excellent in their fields, the JPMorgan Chase employees’ passion for working in the community was obvious. We are grateful to Motsenbocker for her lifetime of service to the community and for being open to new models of “doing good better.”

In addition to recognizing some of our most stellar partners, we will have a night of great entertainment. We will feature the secret talent of the Social Enterprise world in Dallas.

Don’t be too surprised when Salah Boukadoum, Soap Hope founder and social entrepreneur, takes the stage to entertain the crowd!

Additionally, we are thrilled to have Social Venture Partners Dallas’ own singer-songwriter, Billy Crocket, as our featured performer.

Our event will be at the Dallas Marriott City Center, and is open to all who celebrate philanthropy and entrepreneurship. For sponsorship opportunities and tickets, please visit SVPDallas.org.
