You want to put a dent in the world, but you know you’ll only get so far on that journey alone. That’s what Social Venture Partners Tampa Bay is about.
Are you looking for a new approach to philanthropy? Whether you are looking for a way to engage yourself or your entire family, we want to involve you! We offer opportunities that put your talents to work to make an impact or leverage your philanthropic giving to support SVP and the groups we serve.
How It Works
SVP Partners make a minimum, tax-deductible contribution of $5,000 annually per household. Their donations are pooled to fund the local organizations SVP supports as well as our own programming and operations. These contributions are stretched further by those who volunteer their time and skills to strengthen our investees, SVP, and our local community. Our current investment focus is Youth at Risk.
What are we looking for?
Partner roles are very flexible. Some partners simply use SVP as a way to make a highly leveraged gifts; others take advantage of our education sessions, peer learning opportunities, social gatherings; and some roll up their sleeves and dig into volunteer projects.
We seek partners who are open-minded, interested in learning and will question the status quo. They are team players who will collaborate, listen to each other and work for the good of the group. They have a heart for the work and the financial resources to support it. They may be working or retired executives; experienced philanthropists or brand new to charitable giving; they may be long-time residents or new arrivals; and they want to be part of a new model of philanthropy. We call it engaged philanthropy… Helping to make the Tampa Bay community an ever better place.
We seek diversity in our partners who bring creativity and innovative solutions to address our local issues.
In addition to our traditional partner/donor model, we seek the support of corporations, foundations and other donors to provide funds for sponsored partners whose viewpoints and skills add a unique value to our group.
