Other Communities We're In:

SVP International

With more than 3,500 members from Boston to Bangalore, SVP is the world’s largest network of engaged philanthropists. 

In the DFW Metroplex we have over 200 Social Venture Partners. They range from filmmakers to financial managers, from nonprofit leaders to corporate veterans, and from foundation executives to people just beginning to explore their giving potential.

If you want to make a difference – and a bigger difference then you could alone – you’ll want to meet these folks.

Every story is different, but each is fueled by a series of connections. That’s the beauty of the SVP network. You never know who will take your impact to the next level.
