What We Do
Positive social change is our goal. Since 2008, we've invested over $174,000 in four local non-profits. That's just the beginning. The value of each investment is amplified 3-5 times by a multi-year partnership in which SVP partners donate their skills and expertise. Check out our 5 Year Impact Report!
Who We Are
Our network of talented individuals - called partners - combine the power of business and experience with the passion of philanthropy. Engaged partners with a passion to make a difference in our community are the heart of our organization. Take a look at our partner page!
