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.
As an organization we have been learning and educating for several years – it’s time to move to action. No step we take right now will be enough, but we need to take the first step forward – together. Read More »
