Philanthropic Investment Grant


Impact investing through Realize Impact impact is done through a Philanthropic Investment Grant (PHIG). Click below to fill out the online form.

In short, you recommend an investment, tell us what impact you think it’ll have, and then donate the matching capital. If the opportunity is open to others, we’ll share it with every investor we know, to help turn your suggestion into a growing wave of impact. Later, if any capital is returned, we’ll donate 99% to whatever donor advised fund, foundation, or charity that you suggest*.

Three simple steps:


Make a grant from your donor-advised fund, foundation, or your own funds, recommending an impact investment.


Realize Impact does the diligence, reviews the terms, and makes the debt, equity or revenue-based investment.


We donate 99% of the investment returns to your recommended DAF, foundation or other 501(c)(3) nonprofit.

We do this for one low flat fee:
