Social Venture Partners Charleston announces Ian Devine as new Advisory Board Chair

Social Venture Partners Charleston, a program and fund of coastal Community Foundation, has announced Ian Devine as Chair of the Advisory Board.

Devine has been active in the partnership since joining more than four years ago. He has served as an advisor to nonprofit investee partners and as a member of the Investment Committee and the Advisory Board.

“SVP Charleston is a forward-looking leader in ‘engaged philanthropy,’ which combines money with hands-on business experience to help local nonprofits,” Devine said. “It’s exciting to work with talented Partners who roll up their sleeves to help mission-driven organizations fight entrenched economic and educational challenges.”

Devine is a long-time leader in nonprofit and foundation management, with a background in consulting to private banks and asset managers. Devine is founder and president of the Huguette Clark Foundation, a national organization that fights elder financial exploitation. He also serves on the boards of a land conservation trust and an arts foundation.

“Devine’s commitment to the Partnership and nonprofit community is exemplary, and the partnership will continue to grow and deepen impact under his leadership,” said Lara LeRoy, executive director of SVP Charleston.
