    Simple and Transformative


    A grant that offers donors the potential to recover the granted capital and potentially more if the recipient meets a predetermined ‘success scenario.’

    The conditions for the success scenario are established in a document signed between the donor and the nonprofit before the grant is made. If the nonprofit satisfies the requirements through its activities related to the grant, the donor recovers funds according to the best efforts of the grant recipient. The fund recovery must be made to an eligible charitable organization (e.g. a foundation or DAF sponsor) and not directly to an individual.


    Recoverable grants are not securities. The above has been produced by CapShift for informational purposes only regarding charitable giving opportunities and do not constitute or represent an offer or solicitation to invest in securities.
