Other Communities We're In:

SVP International

We know how to transform communities.

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

That’s Social Venture Partners. A global network of local partners aligning passion and purpose.

SVP practices venture philanthropy, a business approach for social impact. We leverage contributions of money, professional expertise and influence from the private sector to grow the most promising solutions and leadership potential in the social sector. Working together, we make transformational change.

Join us, and become a Partner for Good.
