Since the launch of the first Legacy Venture fund more than a decade ago, our investors have committed to invest more than $1 billion to amplify their positive impact in the world.

At Legacy Venture, we tap the potential of venture capital to help our members amplify their positive impact in the world.
Founded in 1999, Legacy aggregates over a billion dollars from nearly 500 investors who intend that all returns, hopefully multiplied nicely, will be used for their individual philanthropic interests. Thus Legacy investors leverage venture returns to make an even more significant impact for good in the world.
These top venture funds are highly sought after and in most cases are not accessible to anyone outside of a very small circle of investors. Legacy has gained access to these venture funds by virtue of its philanthropic mission and its well-connected management team and investors. In exchange for investment access to these top venture funds, our investors intend to donate all principal and profits to the philanthropic causes they individually choose.
Legacy also offers opportunities for investors to interact with each other and with philanthropic leaders, allowing them to further leverage the impact of their gifts. Legacy investors have given to over 6,000 philanthropic organizations across the full spectrum of causes, often innovating in their approach to philanthropy.
Legacy Venture’s management team is comprised of seasoned leaders in venture capital, finance and philanthropy who have more than 50 years of combined experience in the field. Their deep insights and personal networks are a key part of what makes Legacy Venture attractive to such elite and successful funds, and what empower our members to maximize their philanthropy.
