All We See is Potential.

It starts with one person. One person joins many people. Together they will help build communities able to solve our most entrenched problems.

That’s SVP. A global network of local partners aligning passion and purpose.

Helping individuals realize greater impact with their giving, strengthening nonprofits, and investing in collaborative solutions – we make connections that make a difference. Connections that unleash potential.

We create a community of philanthropists to fund and mentor emerging nonprofits to help them get to the next level. Launched in 2000, Social Venture Partners Calgary has raised $1.8 million for direct investment with our investees and provided thousands of hours of volunteer time and expertise to those nonprofit organizations.

    Kids Christmas Party

    December 6, 2014 1:00 pm

    Hero Images together with SVP and Assembly are having a Kids Christmas Party and all our Partners are invited to attend!

    The event will take place on Saturday, December 6th from 1 pm to 3 pm at Assembly Coworking Space, Suite 400, 14th Street NW.

    Please RSVP by November 28th to kathleen@heroimages.com

    We’ll decorate Christmas cookies, have snacks & drinks, visit with Santa AND stuff stockings to give back to the community.

    Buy your child a secret gift (value up to $25), wrap it, put your child’s name on it and bring it to the office before Friday, December 5th. When you arrive at the party, Assembly will reimburse you with a $25 gift card. Every child that attends will get a (your) gift from Santa. PLEASE don’t subsidize your purchase, we’d like all gifts to have an equal value so everyone feels loved the same.

    We’ll be filling stockings for H!P kids, Humanity in Practice.

    We supply the stockings (size approximately 18” x 7.5”) and gift wrap, you bring the stuffers. Below you will find a description of the charities we’ll be helping, with a list of stocking stuffers needed.

    Don’t have kids? That’s okay, come anyway. Bring a toy or two (that will fit in a stocking), have cookies, meet Santa and mingle. If you can’t attend and want to donate a gift, feel free to drop them off at Assembly reception before December 5th.

    BE AN ELF!

    We’re going to help bring Christmas to many women and children living in Calgary transitional homes and trying to rebuild their lives by filling stockings for them.

    We need to make stockings for the following:  For a mom or dad  •  A baby  •  A  young child  •  A  teen

     Stockings can be filled with toys, small gifts, or gift cards from grocery stores, shopping malls, movie theatres, transit passes, etc.

    This project is supporting 3 separate agencies: Youville; which provides safe, long-term, and family-style residential accommodation to women seeking recovery. Teen Angels; which provides teenagers of low-income families, homeless teens, and high-risk teens with a gift at Christmas. And Neighbourlink’s “No Crib for a Bed” which recognizes that many babies go without the basics, including a bed and toiletries.
