Meet our Partners

San Diego is truly fortunate to have so many generous individuals dwelling in its county. SDSVP is particularly lucky to have many of these people invested in the SVP vision of accelerating change together. Many are extensively experienced with philanthropy while others are just starting out and eager to learn from the veteran Partners. The newest editions to the SVP family have impressive professional backgrounds and the common desire to positively impact the San Diego community. Perhaps some of you have met our new Partners at one of the many social events SDSVP hosted this past year. They’re not too shy. In fact, many of them are jumping right in and taking leadership roles. Regardless, SDSVP is excited to have all of the new Partners on board. Read on to find out more…
