Key Details


Through the venture philanthropy model, SVP seeks to effect significant, long-term positive social change in our community by:

  • Strengthening the organizational capacity of local non-profits by investing time, money, and expertise to help them to scale their impact and become high-performing, sustainable organizations
  • Encouraging SVP Partners and their families to be well-informed, effective, and engaged philanthropists who inspire others in the community

Vision: To ensure more children and youth reach their full potential – contributing to a stronger community and a better world.

History: Social Venture Partners Vancouver (formally BC Social Venture Partners) was established in 2001 and was the third affiliate to join the SVP international network of engaged philanthropists investing time, money and professional expertise into local non-profits.
