SVP is both local and global.
On one hand, our philanthropy is local. Our Partners invest money, time and skills in nonprofits that share their immediate community.
On the other hand, our Partners are part of a 3200 global network of philanthropists, entrepreneurs, and changemakers. They share common ideals, similar struggles, and can tap into a wealth of experience and knowledge through network-wide forums and SVP’s annual conference.
There are 40 SVP network member organizations from Boston to Bangalore (and new ones crop up every year). Social Venture Partners International (SVPI) is the invisible backbone, the hub that links everyone together – Partners and nonprofits and cities – allowing them to convene and learn from one another, while fostering new members throughout the world.
SVP is setting new standards in philanthropy development and receiving high marks from nonprofits for outstanding service and unrestricted financial support.
- Building Leaders: no other grant making organization has learned more about the subject of philanthropic leadership and philanthropy development than the SVP Network, nor have they invested as much in evaluating the effect of donor education in terms of giving, volunteering and civic engagement.
- Going Deeper: Network findings prove the SVP model is working well. Recent outcomes data from independently-validated surveys indicates that SVP Partners are giving more dollars, giving more strategically and volunteering more hours in their communities. Plus, nonprofit investees are giving SVP high marks for service and support.
- Reaching Wider: an increasing number of philanthropists around the world are approaching SVP to join the network because they see the value for their community or for their country. Additionally, SVP is the perfect launching point for those private sector professionals are interested in pursuing second careers with a social purpose.
