Who We Are

SVP Charlotte is a network of strategic philanthropists engaged around making our city’s communities stronger.

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.
