The Partner Experience
“It’s an opportunity for personal development as well as a philanthropic opportunity for individuals. It’s about giving of yourself and caring about others and social transformations.” –John Smith, Board Chair
Social Venture Partners Greater Tucson (SVP) offers many ways for Partners—from the newest giver to the most seasoned philanthropist—to invest, engage, learn and grow. The spectrum of activities, which leverage the annual financial contributions, maximizes Partners’ personal experiences and their community impact.
As soon as you join SVP, you will have access to the many benefits our current Partners receive:
- Access expert speakers, panels, and gatherings. You and your family will gain a rich insight into community issues, the nonprofit sector, giving strategies and philanthropic and civic leadership.
- Select from a wide variety of hands-on experience: evaluate grant proposals, lead volunteer teams, and provide your expertise to a local nonprofit organization. These experiences will help you gain in-depth knowledge in philanthropy and local nonprofits.
- Connect with other smart committed people. Share not only your ideas but your passions and experience with others who are interested in issues affecting our city and beyond.
- Get involved at the level of your choice. SVP offers a range ways for you to get involved when and if you can: provide short-term or long-term volunteer assistance, attend a class, join a grant committee or attend a partner meeting and observe. While there are many opportunities to get involved, many of our Partners prefer to only invest their financial resources in SVP and know their contribution is hard at work.
