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 invests through venture philanthropy, a model of giving where its members (Partners) not only provide grants, but also invest their collective expertise and time to support a carefully selected portfolio of nonprofits with the greatest potential to remove barriers to upward mobility.
SVP fuels nonprofit innovation in the community in two distinct ways:
1. Deep, multi-year investments of financial and human resources in a select number of promising nonprofits called Investees
2. SEED20, the annual program of SVP that highlights and supports Charlotte-area nonprofit entrepreneurs.
