The Zero Gap Fund deploys flexible, patient, and risk-tolerant capital to catalyze private investment into strategies that address the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

It is an impact investing collaboration between The Rockefeller Foundation and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation and its Catalytic Capital Consortium.

The Fund’s mandate is to support innovative products and structures that are replicable and scalable, and demonstrate how new solutions may drive needed financing for global good.

We pioneer catalytic capital investments and help our investees attract the additional financing and traction required to reach scale and self-sufficiency.
