The problems we face are complex and daunting. It has never been more important to give – your money, your time, your talent – in ways that make the greatest impact.
That’s why we connect those who want to give with other individuals, organizations, and resources that will amplify their gifts.
Through SVP, our Partners pool and stretch their dollars, contributing much more than they could alone. But that’s just the beginning. After joining SVP, most of our Partners increase their giving even more. They are more strategic, more civically engaged – applying much needed resources and skills to solving our community’s most entrenched problems.
This impact is illustrated in the our giving results and in our Partners’ stories.
People who join SVP want to give in a way that makes the greatest impact possible – on them, on nonprofits, on our community. This can take many forms, and we track changes in our Partners’ financial giving and civic engagement.
