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 challenges.
How Do We Do This? We Go Beyond Philanthropy.
SVP amplifies the impact of those out to do good by leveraging the time and talent of our Partners. SVP provides the opportunity to work hands-on with nonprofits to provide high-level, strategic consultation in areas such as board governance, marketing, fund development, and business strategy, working shoulder to shoulder with nonprofits to achieve the change they want to see in the community.
Since 2000 SVP Denver has helped individuals make smart and leveraged investments in vetted organizations. Over the years, SVP Partners have collectively given more than $685,000 to Denver nonprofits – far more than most could give alone. And that money was stretched farther by the $1.8 million in pro-bono consulting given by SVP Partners.
There are thousands of nonprofits. How do you decide which ones to fund?
At SVP you don’t have to make that decision on your own. Whether or not you participate directly, you benefit from the careful selection and reviews carried out by SVP Grantmaking Committee – ensuring that your money is wisely invested. On the Grantmaking Committee, Partners:
Should I make a few large donations, or lots of small ones? Where can I find nonprofits that are focused on the issues I care about? How do I align my giving with my values?
These are just a few of the questions that SVP Partners bring to the table, and through discussion groups, workshops, and one-to-one meetings, SVP helps tackle them. Our goal? Partners connect with people who share their passion and walk away with the tools they need to make the greatest impact with their giving.
