All We See is Potential.

It starts with one person. One person joins many people. Together we help strengthen our communities and contribute to a better world.

Social Venture Partners is an international network of engaged philanthropists who invest time, money and professional expertise in local non-profits. Our mission is to build the capacity of our investees and strengthen their impact to create sustainable outcomes and positive social change. Here in Vancouver, we focus on helping non-profits that serve children in-need and youth at-risk.

Established in 2001, SVP Vancouver* has contributed over $3 million dollars and thousands of volunteer hours to 40+ non-profits in our local community.  Local success stories include Take A Hike Youth-at-Risk Foundation, Athletics for Kids, KidSafe, The F.O.R.C.E., Yo Bro Youth Initiative Society, One-To-One Literacy Society, and many, many others.

Helping individuals realize greater impact with their giving, building the capacity of nonprofits, solving complex social issues, and investing in collaborative solutions – we make connections that make a difference. Connections that unleash potential.

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

*Social Venture Partners Vancouver and SVP Vancouver are operating names of BC Social Venture Partners Foundation; we are incorporated under the Society Act in British Columbia (S-42026) and a  Registered Charity in Canada (#86668 3196 RR0001).
