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 cultivates effective philanthropists, strengthens nonprofits, and invests in collaborative solutions – building powerful relationships to tackle our community’s social challenges. Our Partners are volunteers, parents, community leaders – all connected in a global network of local Partners joined through passion and purpose. Partners work together through:
1) funding and capacity-building relationships with Investees, local nonprofits that SVP Charlotte’s Partners have vetted and committed to for 1-3 years;
2) SEED20, an annual pitch competition that highlights and supports Charlotte’s leading nonprofit social entrepreneurs;
3) Committees that conduct in-depth, focused research on the landscapes of Charlotte’s most pressing community needs and the organizations and resources that are (or need to be) allocated to address them.
