In 2015, SVP has welcomed a record new number of Partners — and we’re not even halfway through the year! Our membership is its largest to date, with 129 Partners working shoulder to shoulder to bring SVP into its 10th year in Charlotte. Please join us in welcoming each of these unique individuals who’ve chosen our tried-and-true model of venture philanthropy as their way to support and invest into their city and community.
We’re pleased and proud to spend this year celebrating SVP’s 10-year anniversary of venture philanthropy and service to the Charlotte community. As part of this celebration, we’re creating a series of top 10 lists and special stories — starting with 10 reasons founding partner Will Miller started SVP in Charlotte. Tune in next month for another #SVPCLT10!
As part of SVP’s 10th anniversary celebration, we’ll be sharing stories from several community champions–past and present–who have worked with SVP locally and committed themselves to our global mission in deep and meaningful ways over the years. This month, SVP Board member Marinn Bengel interviewed Partner Margaret Marshall.
Happy New Year and Welcome to the 10-year anniversary of our Charlotte SVP affiliate! We’ve come a long way in the last decade and have much to reflect upon and celebrate – which we plan to do throughout the year. Read some of the highlights!
Did you know that SVP has over 100 Partners in Charlotte and more than 3000 worldwide? New Partners are joining all the time! In 2014, 15 new Partners joined our work in Charlotte. Please join us in welcoming our first new Partners of 2015, Sarah and Allen Shifflet!

“Show, don’t tell.”
This is what the stories in the 2014 SVP Network Office Impact Report do. Consider this a glimpse of the impact the SVP Network has on communities around the world – and on both the individuals and organizations that drive change. Read it here!
Charlotte’s SVP contingent turned out solid numbers at this year’s Audacious Philanthropy conference in Austin, TX. Five Charlotte Partners and our whole staff attended, offering a great breadth of experience and perspectives to the rest of the SVP network representatives and taking away a great deal to chew on–both big-picture and small.
We love to see our Investee organizations receiving strong support from the community, but something uniquely special happens when they support each other–like when Circle de Luz, our newest Investee, sends its program participants to volunteer at Sow Much Good’s urban farm.
