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!
SVP provides unrestricted, multi-year investments to a select portfolio of nonprofits that are addressing social and economic inequality (called Investees). SVP works with our Investees to help strengthen their organizations and increase their impact in the community. Our Investees receive an SVP grant (approximately $25,000/year for three years), and as importantly, they receive three years of expertise and acumen from our Partner group
