Our Mission

SVP Melbourne cultivates effective philanthropists, strengthens not for profit organisations, and influences grant makers and social investors

Building powerful relationships in Victoria to tackle our communities’ social challenges

Why we are different?

At SVP Melbourne our mission is to have impact in three areas:
1. Partner connection and development – every person who contributes is impacted both personally and professionally. We gain a rich sense of achievement through being part of a community with shared purpose, discovering new networks, and learning how to engage in philanthropy effectively.

2. Strengthening Victorian Not for Profits through capacity building- leveraging the talent of our partners, bringing financial and in kindsupport to our investees.

3. Community Impact – influence the grant makers and not for profit organisations to realise the impact that human and intellectual capital, as well as financial support can have in achieving better outcomes.

Our focus areas

At SVP Melbourne we currently support the growth and development of Victorian organisations that help disadvantaged young people to learn, grow, and succeed in both work and life.

This includes Victorian Not for Profit organisations who work with disadvantaged and marginalised youth. Many of these organisations are also social enterprises, but not being one is not a limitation to us investing.
We look for Founders and/or management teams who would benefit from the time and skills that SVP Melbourne offers, and most importantly are open to learning, evolving and truly partnering with us.
We also want organisations who are looking to scale their impact on our Victorian society.
