Who We Are

SVP fosters a community of engaged leaders, strengthens social impact organizations, and invests in collaborative solutions — building powerful relationships to reduce intergenerational poverty in our region.


Our Partners are the lifeblood of SVP — they make what we do possible. They are here for the long term, willing to continue learning from those closest to the issues, and invest their time and expertise to help make the end of poverty in Philadelphia a possibility. If you are ready to roll up your sleeves to support Philadelphia’s nonprofits and join the SVP community, get in touch with us at info@svpphl.org.
