The Impact of Your Support

How Recoverable Grants Work

A Recoverable Grant is an innovative financial vehicle that allows RE-volv to receive funding from foundations and Donor Advised Funds, use the funds to build solar projects, and pay the foundation or DAF back with interest over time. At the end of the term, investors can then reinvest or grant those funds to organizations of their choice.

RE-volv is currently seeking to raise $10 Million through two recoverable grant offerings including a 9-year term with a 1% annual interest rate and a 15-year term with a 1.75% annual interest rate. Your support will accelerate the just transition to a clean energy economy that provides real economic value to those that need it most. Investors will receive bi-annual reports showcasing how their grant is creating a positive impact in communities at the front lines of the fight for climate solutions.
