Venn Foundation (Venn) is a nonprofit public charity on a mission to unleash the full power of Program-Related Investments (PRIs) to advance charitable impact. By opening a special donor-advised fund called a Venn Account, any individual or organization can recommend that their charitable dollars be used by Venn to make PRIs. Venn can syndicate any one PRI among any number of Venn Accounts, which means that any combination of individuals, businesses, private foundations, public charities, and donor-advised funds can easily combine their resources into one PRI. Any financial returns from these PRIs go back to participating accounts for the donors to redeploy into new PRIs or to grant out as desired. Our vision is to create a new category of flexible, below-market-rate capital that can be directed creatively to projects and organizations across all sectors that are helping advance charitable goals.
