What if you had a way to close the achievement gap or reduce homelessness, but didn’t have the time or the skills to tackle these issues on your own?  What if you knew how to package and market an idea, but hadn’t found a meaningful use for that talent? 

These are not hypothetical questions. (We’ve shared the story below.) They’re why SVP was founded in the first place: to connect people with diverse skills and shared passion – allowing each to have a greater impact than they could alone.

In partnership with SVP volunteers, our Investees improve human resources policies, financial management, board governance…all that behind-the-scenes work that (when optimized) allows them to fulfill their mission more effectively.

This is just one example. Since 2005, SVP Partners have collectively given more than $765,000 and tens of thousands of volunteer hours to Charlotte nonprofits. The impact of these investments is illustrated in both in numbers and in more of our Investee’s stories.
