Join us in helping great people and nonprofits make a bigger impact in our community!

Below you can support Social Venture Partners  Connecticut or renew your annual membership contribution. To make it easy, we offer a variety of payment options.

Partners give to SVP at levels that are personally significant — in line with their passion for SVP’s mission and their means.  Traditionally, annual contributions begin at $5,000, but contribution levels can be flexible.

All contributions are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Partner contributions can be made by credit card, donor advised fund, check, stock transfer, or corporate matching charitable gift program. In all cases, please ensure that you denote that the contribution is to be directed to the Social Venture Partners Connecticut fund.

Several Ways to Support SVP Financially

Partners in the Greater New Haven region should direct their contributions to this fund, payable to The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven.
