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.

    Data and the nonprofit sector- SVP and Data for Good

    October 23, 2014 7:00 pm

    Calgary’s nonprofits are gathering increasing amounts of data about their own organizations’ programs, donors, and trends. How we use this information internally and externally can have profound financial and social benefits.

    Join Geoff Zakaib from Data for Good and SVP Partner as we explore the data lifecycle and understanding the various roles that our partners can play in working with our nonprofits.

    This promises to be a very interesting and motivating session. It is suitable for SVP partners and friends who would like to play a larger role using their skills in data for our nonprofits. You may be an engineer, a web developer, a data analyst, a data animator or someone who loves surveys and statistics and what data can do for a nonprofit.

    Attendees will leave with a better understanding of the use of data in the nonprofit sector, the data lifecycle from collection to animation and how we can enhance this work.

    Refreshments will be served.
