SVP is both local and global.
On the one hand, this is philanthropy rooted in your backyard. Our Partners invest money, time and skills in nonprofits that share their immediate community.
SVP-CT is extremely fortunate to be closely aligned with Fairfield County’s Community Foundation (FCCF).
The FCCF administers the SVP-CT funding as one of their Field of Interest Funds. The strong partnership with FCCF is a vital component of SVP-CT’s work toward strategic goals in the region, such as economic development and nonprofit capacity building.
In working with FCCF, SVP-CT has been able to build a robust foundation for programming to inspire, develop, and grow sustainable social enterprise which can expand to other arenas over time.
But SVP-CT’s reach is global as well.
Our Partners are part of a 3500+ global network of philanthropists, entrepreneurs, and change-makers located in over 40 cities around the world including the U.S., Canada, Japan, Korea, Australia, China, India, and the United Kingdom. They share common ideals, similar struggles, and can tap into a wealth of experience and knowledge through cross-city forums and SVP’s annual conference .
Currently there are SVP network member organizations from Boston to Bangalore (and additional chapters are slated to join soon). The SVP Network Office is the invisible backbone, the hub that links our member organizations and their Partners, allowing them to convene and learn from one another, while fostering new SVPs throughout the world.
