You want to give back to your community, but you know you’ll only get so far on that journey alone. That’s what Social Venture Partners (SVP) is for.

This journey starts with you. SVP meets you where you are and goes alongside you to help you achieve your goals. The whole community benefits as a result.

How It Works

SVP Partners contribute an equivalent of $5,000 annually for up to 2 people. While most Partners contribute the full $5,000, some Partners fulfill a portion of their annual contribution with volunteer hours. Their donations are pooled to fund the local nonprofits SVP supports as well as our programming and operations. These contributions are stretched further by those who volunteer their time and skills to strengthen our Investees, SVP, and the social sector at large.

Partner roles are very flexible. Some Partners simply use SVP as a way to make a highly leveraged gift, others take advantage of our education sessions and peer learning opportunities, and some give their time for direct volunteer projects. With SVP, our Partners enjoy a sense of community by building relationships with creative thinkers, change makers, and community-minded leaders.
