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 build a Puget Sound region where everyone thrives regardless of income or race.
