SVP is bold and bright—and we look a little bit different in each community. We invite you to get engaged in a personal way as you explore this website by selecting your own colors!
Going Beyond Philanthropy
SVP is a philanthropic organization, but we do more than give away money.
We connect people who want to give back and the nonprofits that make change possible – cultivating effective philanthropists and strong organizations that deliver greater impact, together.
Side by side, we will build a Puget Sound region where everyone thrives regardless of income or race.
