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 $2 million for direct investment with our investees and provided thousands of hours of volunteer time and expertise to those nonprofit organizations.

    Cocktails & Collaborations

    May 10 @ 7:00 pm

    Join us for a casual evening of cocktails and appetizers to catch a glimpse into what SVP does. Representatives from an investee will present a real life situation currently affecting their organization. Partners and guests will share expertise and ideas to create effective solutions. This evening will feature current investee, Two Wheel View.

    Two Wheel View (TWV) has been an SVP Investee since 2013 and has received $135,000 in SVP Calgary funding and countless hours of Partner time. The growth of TWV is phenomenal and something SVP feels privileged to have played a part in. Since becoming an Investee they have grown from working with 150 to more than 500 kids, and the operating budget has grown from $150,000 to $800,000 annually. Staff has grown from 2 full time to a total of 13 (full and part time). With a twinge of sadness, but mostly pride, TWV is graduating from SVP in June 2017.

    Please join us for cocktails and mingling, and use your brain power in one final capacity building session. Let’s send TWV off in the future poised for continued growth and success.
