SVP is bold and bright—and we look a little bit different in each community. We invite you to get engaged in a personal way as you explore this website by selecting your own colors!
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.
SVP’s Leadership Retreat is a time for affiliate leadership – board, staff and key partners – from around the world to come together to learn, share and get inspired.
Chock-full of useful resources and opportunities to connect, this year’s line-up features: the unveiling of SVP’s new philanthropy development curriculum, peer-learning among SVP staff and leadership, plus in-depth working sessions on equity and impact investing.
The retreat takes place in Scottsdale, Arizona on April 19-21, 2017.
