We are people for whom improving our community is part of our life’s journey – whether we work in the nonprofit or corporate world.
We are volunteers, parents, community leaders, philanthropists – a global network of local partners connecting passion and purpose. We see the chasm between the challenges we face today as a society and the scale at which we are engaging those challenges.
And we’re ready to cross that chasm. Together.
Through our rigorous investment approach and collective giving, we sharpen our philanthropy and have an impact much greater than we would on our own.
We believe that nothing truly great is accomplished alone. Every person in our network has something to teach and something to learn. We are never satisfied, never settled. We know we have more to give, and that more needs to be done.
Most importantly, we believe it can be.
Where others see insurmountable problems, we see potential.
We are committed to engaged philanthropy.
We give of ourselves, our time, our expertise, and our contacts — to help our investees achieve growth goals that they often thought were impossible. Through this direct involvement, we too, are strengthened as philanthropists and more personally connected to one another and to our community.
That’s impact. That’s engaged philanthropy.
That’s Social Venture Partners Charleston
