SVP is a community of Partners committed to mobilizing people and leveraging resources to reduce intergenerational poverty in our region. We envision a Philadelphia where the frontline leaders working closest to the issues have direct access to the resources necessary to make lasting change.
Traditional philanthropy doesn’t hold itself accountable to the organizations its money reaches: emphasis is placed on the wants of investors, rather than the needs of our community. Support rarely goes beyond the check, and the skills and expertise of the people involved aren’t fully leveraged.
We know there is a better way to make an impact.
SVP is a community of Partners who are passionate about making real change happen in Philadelphia. We know that ending intergenerational poverty in Philadelphia is possible, and our Partners are eager to learn alongside and support the people who are closest to the issues to make that happen.
Expand your network, roll up your sleeves with others and help design more effective and collaborative ways to change the course of poverty in our region by working directly with local social impact organizations.
We have an opportunity to evolve. There’s an opportunity to think about who has been left out of the picture, who has not been given the opportunity to really scale up their impact, and then provide them with the resources they need.
