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.

    SVP Calgary Open House and Pub Night

    March 6, 2015 7:00 am

    SVP Calgary is moving and on March 6th, we will be hosting an open house and Pub Night.

    Join us to share some food, drinks and your thoughts! Yes your thoughts, as our Investees have been invited to bring forward a question or an area where they would like some advice. Our Partners and guests will have an opportunity to brainstorm ideas, connections and resources that could help the investees.

    Come and experience the essence of SVP:  sharing skills, knowledge and expertise to help nonprofits make a greater impact!

    This event is open to everyone who is an SVP friend… past, present and future!
