Who We Are

SVPI Founder Paul Shoemaker visits with SVPSA Partners at the home of Ed and Linda Whitacre.

We are individuals, couples, families and companies that are putting our investment and talents to work to improve our community. 

Social Venture Partners San Antonio includes many names you already know, and many you don’t. We are C-suite leaders, volunteers, parents, community leaders, philanthropists – a network of local partners that are studying and engaging with nonprofits that are impacting challenges across the region. We give our financial gifts, as well as our talents.

And we’re ready to roll up our sleeves. Together. 

We are putting resources together to work shoulder to shoulder with a nonprofit leader and their staff to help them be better, or expand what they are doing. We accomplish this by providing funding and coaching so they can scale a critical program, create new innovative solutions, expand their earned revenue, and raise the level of effectiveness in many ways. We are on the lookout for organizations that need funding and help from some of the brightest minds in San Antonio. We do not seek to be on a Board of Directors – we just like the idea of rolling up our sleeves for a good cause. Mostly, we believe that nothing truly great is accomplished alone and within each of us is a gift that can be shared for the greater good.
