Aligning Passion with Purpose

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 to realize greater impact with their giving, strengthen nonprofits, and invest in collaborative solutions.

SVP Connecticut’s social impact focus is to close the opportunity gap in Connecticut by supporting innovative organizations and initiatives in education and workforce development.  We also work to solve the most pressing problems in our state by investing and collaborating with other funders and organizations in the public and private sectors.

We make connections that make a difference.
