In addition to our off-the-shelf service that lets anyone turn philanthropic capital into an impact investment, this year Realize Impact now also operates three philanthropic investment funds for three partners.
The Decarbon8-US fund is for those who believe in the power of entrepreneurship and technology and wonder what more they can do to mitigate climate change.
Created in partnership with E8 Angels, a national Angel group focused on investing in cleantech startups.
The R.I.S.E. Artisan Fund invests in and supports early-stage artisan enterprises that create sustainable livelihoods for rural communities with few economic alternatives.
Created in partnership with Sprout Enterprise.
The Mission Driven Finance Fund invests in: inclusive place-based strategies; early care & education; immigrants, refugees, and new Americans; cooperatives and employee ownership; and environmental justice.
Created in partnership with Mission Driven Finance.
Investing in any of these funds is just as easy as investing in any other impact investment. You (1) donate through your DAF, foundation, or appreciated shares, (2) recommend your capital go into one or more of these funds, and (3) we’ll donate 99% of any investment proceeds back to your DAF or to another 501c3.
Just fill out a PHIG to get started.
