Become a Partner

You want to put a dent in the world, but you know you’ll only get so far on that journey alone. That’s what SVP is for.

It starts with you. We can’t define the change you’re searching for, but we will help you achieve it. We’ll connect you to the people and organizations that share your passion, and together we will amplify your impact.

How It Works

SVP Partners make a minimum contribution of A$5,000 annually, made up of a tax deductible donation of A$4,000 to The Social Venture Partners Australia Fund (“SVP Australia Fund”) and a membership fee of A$1,000 to Social Venture Partners Melbourne Limited.  The SVP Australia Fund is a public ancillary fund.  Donations are pooled to fund the local nonprofits SVP supports (our “Investees”) while the membership fees fund our programming, operations and any Investees not eligible to be funded from the SVP Australia Fund.  The financial support we provide is stretched further by our Partners who volunteer their time and skills to strengthen our investees, SVP, and the venture philanthropy sector in Australia at large.

Partner roles are very flexible. Some Partners simply use SVP as a way to make a highly leveraged gift, others take advantage of our education sessions and peer learning opportunities, and some roll up their sleeves and dig into volunteer projects.

You may also join us as a Partner Unit – two for the price of one!  You pay one lot of partnership dues and are both welcome to be as active with SVP’s events and volunteer projects as you choose. More information about SVP Melbourne can be found here.
