All We See is Potential.

Social Venture Partners Waterloo Region is a philanthropic organization, but we do more than give away money.

We work with and connect a network of engaged community members with local charities, and these leaders invest their time, money, and professional expertise into local charities, helping them build their capacity over partnerships that last up to three years. We also support the broader charitable sector through skills-building programs like Perfect Pitch, SVP Teens, and our lunch workshop series.

Through venture philanthropy, we seek to effect significant, long-term social change in Waterloo Region.
