SVP International

Our Partners

With more than 2700 members from Boston to Bangalore to Melbourne, SVP is the world’s largest network of engaged donors. 

From 10 founding partners in May 2013, SVP Melbourne now has in excess of 25 Partners.  Our partners range from university professors to community leaders, from nonprofit veterans to C-suite corporate executives, and from professional advisers to the newly retired.  For many of our Partners SVP Melbourne is the ideal platform 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 this group.

Every partner story is different, but each is fuelled by a series of connections, who love meeting new people.  That’s the beauty of the SVP network. You never know who you’ll meet and how you can help an organisation, utilising your skills, learning as you volunteer.  You get as much back as you give, probably more.
