The SVP Portland chapter was founded in 2001. Since then, they have invested $2.8 million in 26 nonprofits in the Portland metro area. One investment alone returned more than $330 million in refunds to working poor families on an investment of $170,000. Unlike most other affiliates, SVP Portland is focused on solving a singular, focused goal each decade. Social Venture Partners is the largest global network of engaged donors in the world. Founded by a group of high-tech entrepreneurs in Seattle in 1997, SVP operates in 40 cities with 4,000 Partners worldwide.
