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.

    In just a little more than two years, SVP Waterloo Region has been able to turn every $1 of grant dollars into more than $3 of nonprofit support! How do we do that? By giving more than cheques. By leveraging our financial donations with our time and talent.

    This year’s SVP 2014 Impact Report shows that our three investee organizations have received more than $550,000 in total support from SVP, including $183,200 in grants plus $375,000 in volunteer time from skilled and passionate partners. Thank you partners!
