Going Beyond Philanthropy

SVP is a philanthropic organization, but we do more than give away money.

We connect people who want to give back and the nonprofits that make change possible – cultivating effective philanthropists and strong organizations that deliver greater impact, together.

Side by side, we will reach a community where all kids receive an excellent education and all people live and work in a healthy environment.

Cultivating effective philanthropists, strengthening nonprofits, and accelerating collection action to help ensure an excellent education and a healthy environment for all. We are now poised to take that work to new heights. Help us find the next great captain to lead that journey!
