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.
We now look to evolve and realign SVP Seattle around a framework for philanthropy that centers racial equity and catalyzes systems change. Our journey is about evolving how we practice philanthropy: using new techniques and prioritizing work that changes unjust systems. Read More »
