For twenty years, Social Venture Partners has leveraged the networks of thousands of engaged philanthropists to effect meaningful change in communities worldwide. Today, SVP is 8 countries and 43 affiliate chapters strong—a global movement of over 3400 engaged donors, skilled leaders and volunteers transforming the world’s understanding of social impact.
Every year, their international community converges to renew its commitment to the challenge of smarter philanthropy. They share the best of their affiliates’ work across the globe; examine the sector’s most pressing concerns and emerging practices; deepen the understanding of our individual and collective roles as change agents; and expand through the connections that define our network.
This year, in Vancouver, the Summit will gather their global network to examine the what it means to center impacted and historically marginalized communities. How does historical context show up today? How do we show up in ways that allow us to contribute to transformation? How do we honor communities we seek to work with?
