Why It Matters

 

When you look around your community, what do you see?

Chances are you see some major issues. Schools struggling to make the grade. Wilderness threatened by special interests. Resource strapped nonprofits, every one a David to their particular Goliath.

At SVP, all we see is potential.

There is indeed a chasm between the challenges we face today, and the scale at which we are engaging those challenges. These problems aren’t going to solve themselves. There are no silver bullets. And throwing money at them isn’t going to make them go away. Clearly, no single person has the answer.

But what if every single person steps up to the plate?

What happens if you take the potential of every individual, connect them directly to the people working on the issues they are passionate about, and challenge them to make a difference?

At SVP we’ve seen what happens, and the results are transformational.

It starts with one person ready to engage in the hard work of change. That one person joins many people. Many people stand shoulder-to-shoulder with local nonprofits, taking their vital work – for kids, for families, for the environment – to the next level. Together they help build communities able to solve our most entrenched social and environmental problems.
