All We See is Potential.

It starts with one person. One person joins many people. Together they will help build communities able to solve our most entrenched problems.

That’s SVP. A global network of local partners aligning passion and purpose.

Helping individuals realize greater impact with their giving, strengthening nonprofits, and investing in collaborative solutions – we make connections that make a difference. Connections that unleash potential.

    Partner Summer Gathering & Strategic Review Update

    For the past 6 months the 15-member Strategic Review Team has been working together to plan for SVP Connecticut’s future based upon a deeper understanding of Partner interests and community needs.   The comprehensive process included a landscape analysis of our community, a best practices review of our SVP network, and an analysis of our internal organization, including Partner experiences, and our current operating and financial model.

    These activities and other external data have formed the basis for the draft of a three-year strategic plan that the committee will present to the partnership for review and comment at the Summer Partner Gathering in July hosted by Nancy Diamond and Jeff Mayer.  Date and time to be confirmed soon!
