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 SVP Toronto is for.
It starts with you. We can’t define the change you’re searching for, but we will help you achieve it. We’ll connect you to the people and organizations that share your passion, and together we will amplify your impact.
How It Works
SVP Toronto’s Partners make a minimum, tax-deductible contribution of $5000 or $2500 annually. Their donations are pooled to fund the local organizations that we support, as well as our programming and operations. These contributions are stretched further by those who volunteer their time and skills to strengthen our Investees, SVP Toronto, the SVP global network, and the social sector at large.
Partner roles are very flexible. Some Partners simply use SVP as a way to make a highly leveraged gift, others take advantage of our education sessions and peer learning opportunities, and some roll up their sleeves and dig into volunteer projects. Learn about these opportunities and more >>
Diversifying the Partnership
At SVP Toronto we recognize that a strong network depends on diverse perspectives, and contribution of $5,000 limits that diversity. That is why we offer other ways for people to join.
We also offer a special membership category called “half partners”, for those who donate a minimum of $2500. This is a great way for a couple to join together, and for a broad range of individuals from across our city to join our growing network. “Half partners” enjoy the same volunteer opportunities and programming as our full partners, and are entitled to a half vote each when selecting investees.
If you are interested in becoming an SVP Partner, please contact Karim Rahemtulla at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We would like you to meet some of our current Partners, hear about their experiences, and learn more about SVP Toronto’s impact.
