Application Deadline: 
Friday, February 21, 2020

Prime Coalition

Prime Coalition (“Prime”) is a 501c3 public charity that partners with philanthropists to invest catalytic capital in extraordinary companies that combat climate change, have a high likelihood of achieving commercial success, and are otherwise unlikely to be sufficiently supported. Our goal is to encourage as many philanthropists as possible to join our tribe, including foundations, donor-advised funds, individuals, corporations and grantmaking public charities.

Prime's long-term success will be measured by our portfolio companies’ impact on reducing global greenhouse gas emissions. In the short-term, our success is defined by key performance indicators such as the number of first-time philanthropic investors and first-time climate grantors we mobilize. We run three core programs to accomplish our goals:

  1. building and supporting Prime's catalytic investments
  2. catalyzing climate investing broadly
  3. sharing our lessons learned about philanthropic investing

While climate change mitigation is our exclusive cause area and early-stage innovation is the intervention lever we pull to address it, we believe our approach to philanthropic investment holds promise in many cause verticals and to address a variety capital gaps in the global financial sector. We aspire to set a precedent of excellence in catalytic capital investing that will inspire an entire marketplace of charitable asset owners and intermediaries within our lifetime.
