Our 501vc® Investment Fund: a unique approach
Evergreen’s 501vc® model is a seed stage investment fund capitalized with philanthropic dollars. Our fund’s revolving evergreen structure enables us to recycle our investment returns to generate compounding impact.
Bringing Climate Technologies to Market
Our unique model allows us to be more patient and absorb more risk than a traditional investor, helping to bridge the early-stage commercialization gap. We are hands-on investors. We work closely with our portfolio companies to identify and execute a clear, well-funded path to market. Beyond the money we invest, we provide invaluable resources and opportunities that arise from our extensive network throughout the climate tech innovation ecosystem that we have spent over a decade cultivating.

You Can Create Compounding Impact
Through our revolving evergreen fund, we put philanthropic grants and contributions to work again and again. This helps provide a sustainable stream of capital for early-stage startups and creates meaningful, ongoing impact from the philanthropic contributions we receive.
