Local partners connecting passion and purpose

We are the partners of SVP Arizona

We are business leaders, parents, community advocates, and engaged philanthropists – a global network of local partners connecting passion and purpose.

We believe the venture philanthropy model enables all of us to not only give, but to also directly engage with innovative nonprofit organizations who work to catalyze significant long-term change – right here in the Valley.

Because of our Partners, our community is stronger. Our Partners are giving more strategically and are engaging in solving our community’ challenges. With your help, we take that work to the next level.


Our Partnership is diverse! We each have different expertise areas and professional backgrounds from various sectors, industries, and professions, but all of us share a passion for enhancing our community.

In the process, we make new friends, and learn to apply this progressive approach to philanthropy and gain an informed, deeper understanding of social issues, the nonprofit sector, and the organizations and people in that space who work full time to solve them. In turn, we understand how to become better philanthropists.

SVP goes beyond philanthropy. 

We pool money and make grants, but we also build powerful relationships among people who want to give back and the nonprofits that make change possible. 

Everyone we work with wants to build a better world and tackle the challenges our community faces. Through SVP Arizona our Partners make a greater impact – together.  

So let’s roll up our sleeves and work side-by-side with those doing the work to make Valley children successful.

Better philanthropists. Better philanthropy. Better World.

We believe that nothing truly great is accomplished alone. Every person in our network has something to teach and something to learn. SVP Arizona provides a framework in which your potential and desires to be a change maker can be realized.
