When it comes to giving back to the community we all share, John McCorvie is clear about his priorities.
“There are two main reasons that I give,” says John, a longtime SVP Partner member who donates to SVP monthly, on top of the membership contribution his company – Peak Asset Management, LLC – makes to SVP. “First, in terms of impact, I don’t believe there’s any other organization that leverages my gift as much as SVP because of the work of our Partners with local nonprofits.
“The nonprofits that we work with are providers of direct services to individuals in Boulder County. Through the work of our Partners, we strengthen their impact in our community.”
John – a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) and Portfolio Manager at Peak Asset Management – also notes “the development of our Partners in the effectiveness of their philanthropy happens through the experience of SVP.”
“For me, personally, I’ve come to understand the nonprofit sector in a much more intimate way and I’m much more strategic in how I give,” he explains. “Through SVP, I’m able to consult with other nonprofits, and share experiences gleaned in the nonprofit world with others.
“I want SVP to thrive, to ensure it provides others with the same experiences I’ve had over the past 12 years.”
Concludes John, “On Colorado Gives Day, I encourage everyone to give to the organizations that move them personally. For me, I know that giving to SVP is a great gift because of its multiple levels of impact.”
We encourage you to leverage your giving by making a donation to SVP and using #GivingTuesday to pre-schedule a gift for Colorado Gives Day. With a $1M incentive – one of the largest gives-day incentive funds in the country – every nonprofit receiving a donation through ColoradoGives.org gets a boost from the fund, increasing the value of every dollar donated. And, special this year, SVP’s Board of Directors has contributed a matching fund of $5,000, meaning your gift will be doubled!
