PRIME Coalition is a 501(c)(3) public charity that enables philanthropists to invest charitable capital in extraordinary companies that combat climate change, have a high likelihood of achieving commercial success, and would otherwise have a difficult time raising sufficient financial support.
PRIME has mobilized over $16 million on a deal-by-deal basis to back 7 start-ups since mid-2015, each of which could mitigate 1 gigaton/year of CO2 equivalent emissions when deployed at scale.
PRIME is raising a $20-40MM impact fund to scale this investment activity, with support from an operational grant by the U.S. Department of Energy.
The PRIME Impact Fund will conduct its first close during Summer 2018.

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.
