About Venn Foundation
Venn Foundation is a nonprofit public charity on a mission to unleash the full power of Program-Related Investments (PRIs) to advance charitable impact. Our vision is to create a new category of flexible, below-market investment capital that can be directed creatively to projects and organizations across all sectors that are helping advance charitable goals.
By opening a special donor-advised fund called a “Venn Account”(TM) with Venn Foundation, any individual or organization can recommend that their charitable donations or grants 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, or other donor-advised funds can easily combine their charitable resources into one Venn PRI. Any financial returns from these PRIs go back into participating Venn Accounts for donors to redeploy into new PRIs or to grant out as desired. Charitable entities also have options for returning Venn Account dollars back to their own organizational accounts.
