Other Communities We're In:

SVP International

With more than 3500 members from Boston to Bangalore, SVP is the world’s largest network of engaged donors. 

At Social Venture Partners Minnesota we have over 110 Partners (our donors). They range from financial managers to COOs, from corporate veterans to chairs of their school board, and from seasoned philanthropists 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.

Linda Ireland uses her personal Board service experience to guide nonprofits to stronger governance structures. Jim Anderson applies his consulting expertise to mentor nonprofit leaders and other SVP Partners in best practices. Charlie Maxwell found a way to engage his employees in meaningful work with local nonprofits. Al Fan found his calling as the leader of a local nonprofit organization after leaving an executive position at General Mills and volunteering with SVP.

And the list goes on.

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.
