There are many benefits to becoming a BC Social Venture Partner.
Access the Network
You'll gain immediate access to a community of peers. With quarterly Partner social events, and opportunities to work on committees or with Grantees, it's easy to meet other like-minded people. Many Partners have also found valuable mentors through the BC SVP network.
Become a Strategic Philanthropist
We've created an optional but recommended progression of involvement for new Partners, to take the guessing out of how to get engaged. Learn more about the three-step Partner Program that will help you become an effective and strategic philanthropist.
Give Time When You Have Time
Busy people are welcome! You may be able to contribute a great deal just by making an important connection, opening the door to a new network, or arranging an in-kind donation for a Grantee group.
Extend Your Support
Partners with greater financial resources often choose to make additional Grants to specific projects, in addition to their Pooled Fund contributions. These projects are coached and supported by the expertise of other Partners, making them a wise way to use your wealth to leverage the talents of your colleagues.
