BVU's mission is to link businesses and nonprofits to foster excellence in the nonprofit sector.

BVU is funded by business members, foundations, United Way of Greater Cleveland, individuals and fees generated by consulting services. Revenues from businesses cover BVU's services for businesses; revenues from foundations and individuals are important to support BVU's services for nonprofits, since the majority of BVU's nonprofit clients have budgets under $1 million.

Your donation will provide the opportunity for nonprofits to work with BVU, building their capacity to provide assistance to those they serve. By supporting BVU, you support the hundreds of nonprofit organizations that rely on our services. Because we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, all donations are tax deductible in accordance with federal law.

You can support BVU's work by donating by mail:
