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!
We take an engaged philanthropy approach to funding innovative charities.
When we invest in an organization, we pledge three years of unrestricted funding, and amplify the impact of that capital by volunteering our time,expertise and network connections to support them.
In return, we get the opportunity to learn more about the needs of our community
and how best to address them.
SVP Waterloo Region is a partnership for giving. Our Partners come from many professions, ages and interest areas, but we all share an interest in creating lasting social impact in our community. By pooling annual contributions and social resources, we are making a bigger, more meaningful impact than any of us could make on our own.
