Reimagine Awards

Recognizing movement leaders driving systems change

As part of our ongoing effort to reimagine giving, SVP International is proud to announce its inaugural Reimagine Awards! The Reimagine Awards will celebrate and amplify movement leaders around the world who are driving systems change and carrying a bold vision of how philanthropy can better support movements for justice. 

Do you know someone who is deeply committed to advancing social justice movements? Nominate them directly. We look forward to hearing their story.
