Visionary Leadership Circle

What is SV2’s Visionary Leadership Circle?

As a long-time catalyst and leader within Silicon Valley’s philanthropic and social change ecosystem, SV2 has an inspiring and respected track record of bringing about transformative change in our community and in our Partners’ philanthropic journeys. The need for our work together has never been greater.

Galvanized by our ambitious strategic plan, we’ve introduced powerful learning and social change offerings to our Partner families and our Grantees that change lives, change organizations, and, ultimately, enhance opportunities and outcomes for our neighbors who are struggling most here in our own backyard in Silicon Valley.

Who is invited?

We have an exciting challenge match from our founder to bring forth a new generation of visionary leaders within SV2 committed to our mission, organizational capacity, sustainable impact and future. We invite you to be a founding member of SV2’s Visionary Leadership Circle by contributing $20,000+ per year.

What are the benefits?

If desired, you will be recognized through SV2’s:

  • Website
  • Impact Report
  • Fall and Spring All-Community Gatherings

You and a significant other will be invited to:

  • Have dinner at the home of SV2’s founder and board chair emeritus, Laura Arrillaga-Andreessen
  • Connect and learn with fellow Visionary Leadership Circle Partners through periodic intimate gatherings
  • Other special events and opportunities in the social impact field
