    Simple and Transformative


    Recoverable grants are a donations that offers the potential to recover capital and potentially a small return if the recipient nonprofit 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 is repaid according to the best efforts of the grant recipient. The repayment 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.
