All We See is Potential.

It starts with one person. One person joins many people. Together they will help build communities able to solve our most entrenched problems.

That’s SVP. A global network of local partners aligning passion and purpose.

Helping individuals realize greater impact with their giving, strengthening nonprofits, and investing in collaborative solutions – we make connections that make a difference. Connections that unleash potential.

    What change do you want to see in our world? What role will you play? Who will you share it with? These are some of the questions SVP Partners tackle around the world, embarking on a journey that goes well beyond philanthropy. Meet a few of them in this brief video from our friends in Seattle, and find out what SVP is all about!

    Why SVP? It’s Our Model!

    Why do our Partners join SVP Tucson? Many want to pool and stretch their dollars, contributing more than they could alone. Others desire to give their time and talent. For long-time Partner David “Griff” Griffis, the answer lies in our venture philanthropy model.
