GETTING STARTED AT SVP
Complete New Partner Intake Form
We ask all new Partners to complete this brief(ish) intake form. It can be filled out online here.
Make a Donation
We require all Partners to make an annual, personally significant gift. We encourage Partners to give at the $5000+ level but recognize that personally significant giving is different for different people and allow for that flexibility.
Most donations are between $3500 and $6000.
There is a minimum required $1500 per person per year.
If you want to donate by credit card or checking account, you can do so here and even set up recurring donations monthly or quarterly, if you prefer to break it up.
We can also take stock transfers. Click here for instructions.
Checks can be sent to:
San Diego Social Venture Partners
PO Box 60234, San Diego CA 92166
We require that all Partners attend a New Partner Orientation, which are offered every two months. Check the SVP Calendar for our next orientation date. This is an opportunity to get a better understanding for our organization, what we are working on right now, and how to get involved.
Meet Your Sherpa
At the Orientation or shortly following, you'll meet your "Sherpa" who is another SVP Partner who will be in touch with you periodically during your first year.
Watch for The Stir email every other Friday to get caught up on the latest at SVP. Also look out for emails offering you opportunities to use your skills with nonprofits. Have fun!
