SVP International

Core Partners

With more than 4,000 members from Boston to Bangalore, SVP is the world’s largest network of engaged donors. 

If you want to make a difference – and a bigger difference then you could alone – you’ll want to meet these folks.

SVP Core Partners are engaged philanthropists. They are a multi-generational network of professionals, businesses, and foundations who contribute some combination of financial, human and social capital to support SVP’s venture philanthropy model and community goals.

  • Financial capital: Partners pool their financial resources to achieve the greatest collective impact.
  • Human capital: Partners are accomplished professionals from diverse fields who invest their expertise.
  • Social capital: Partners leverage their connections to advance SVP’s goals and the need of our nonprofit partners and initiatives.

If you’re interested in becoming a Partner, a good first step is to contact Rebecca Brown-Schroeder, our Interim Partnership Manager, at rebecca@svpportland.org or 503.222.0114. She can sit down with you for a conversation about what Partnership entails and to explore if SVP is a good fit with your philanthropic aspirations. She can connect you to other Partners and invite you to upcoming events to help build your understanding of what we’re all about. Once you’ve decided that you’re ready to join this audacious group of philanthropists, you can decide how you’d like to make your Partnership contribution and begin exploring opportunities to engage. Simone will be your go-to person throughout the joining process and then for all of your Partner needs thereafter.

The standard financial contribution amount for Partnership is $5,000 per year* and can be made in a variety of ways, including checks, credit card, stocks, foundation/donor advised funds, and company sponsorship/matching. Once you pledge your contribution, our staff will orient you to our community efforts and explore where you might like to engage.
