Other Communities We're In:

SVP International

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

    Join us for a casual evening of cocktails and appetizers to catch a glimpse into what SVP does. One of our past Fast Pitch participants will present a real life situation currently affecting their organization. Partners and their guests will share expertise and ideas to collaboratively create effective solutions. We highly encourage you to bring friends. Space is limited so don’t wait to sign up!

    Please join us for cocktails and mingling, and use your brain power in a capacity building session.
