Who We Are

We are people for whom improving our community is part of our life’s journey.

We are corporate executives, community leaders, volunteers, philanthropists, parents– a network of local partners connecting passion and purpose. We see the chasm between the challenges we face today as a society and the way we are engaging those challenges.

And we’re ready to cross that chasm. Together.

We believe that nothing truly great can be accomplished alone. Every person in our network has something to teach and something to learn. We are never satisfied, never settled. We know we have more to give, and that more needs to be done.

Most importantly, we believe it can be.

Where others see insurmountable problems, we see potential.

Our Dream

We are Social Venture Partners Sacramento.

Since its inception in 2008, Social Venture Partners Sacramento has united the power of the business community with the passion of the nonprofit world. At the core, SVP Sacramento is a growing community of engaged venture philanthropists, united by the common goal of providing every child in the greater Sacramento region with an excellent education.

And we share in a dream: We dream that every child can enjoy an excellent education from kindergarten through high school graduation and beyond.

  • We dream that such excellence will include:
  • Raising the caliber of all K-12 opportunities throughout the Sacramento region
  • 100% of our 3rd graders reading at or above grade level
  • 2/3 of all 5th, 8th, and 11th graders testing proficient or above in science and math
  • All students graduating with a 0% dropout rate
  • 100% of high school graduates succeeding in their first best choice of college or career

Dream with us.

If you, like us, are passionate about building a solid foundation for future generations through Engaged Philanthropy, we hope you will consider partnering with SVP Sacramento. Should you recognize shared passion, curiosity, or interest in engaging with other inspiring business leaders in the Sacramento area, the time is now to become part of this movement. By harnessing the collective power of Sacramento’s business and philanthropic community, we produce a greater impact than any one partner could have individually.
