Our Values

Building a more innovative world

We help create the conditions for innovation to thrive by lowering barriers so that current and future entrepreneurs can overcome obstacles, pursue big ideas and make a powerful impact on people’s lives. Through our programs, we help the communities in which we work and live.

Community involvement

Our programs focus on improving lives in communities in which we work and live through corporate giving, employee volunteering and environmental sustainability programs. In addition to these programs, we finance affordable housing in the San Francisco Bay Area as part of our commitment to the Community Reinvestment Act


Corporate Giving
We support our employees’ passion for community giving in two key ways. SVB employees may apply for SVB Foundation grants on behalf of nonprofit organizations for which they actively volunteer and SVB matches an employee’s personal donations and volunteer hours to nonprofit organizations of their choice.

SVB champions innovation by helping entrepreneurs execute their big ideas. We take the same approach with initiatives that support the communities in which we live and work.
