SVP is bold and bright—and we look a little bit different in each community. We invite you to get engaged in a personal way as you explore this website by selecting your own colors!
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.
