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.

Right before the end of the year, I had a moment where I failed to help someone and it continues to bother me. So, in 2015, I will hesitate less. I will reach out more. I will find small moments to stretch myself. Will you join me?
