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.
