Trillion Fund is an equity crowdfunding platform that raises money for environmental and social projects.

It was founded in 2011 by Dr. Michael Stein and Phillip Riches. The platform was launched in response to warnings given by the United Nations that it will take US$1 trillion of investment annually to prevent the world from warming by more than 2 degrees. This one trillion figure gave rise to the company's name.[1]

Trillion is privately owned. Vivienne Westwood became a majority stakeholder in March 2013,[2] and Albion London took a stake in April 2014.[3] Mark Stevenson has a role in the advisory board of Trillion Fund.[4]

With the merger of buzzbnk the site has 14,000 members.[5][6]

In 2019 the platform closed. According to the Trillion Fund website, "Trillion has closed & has repaid all loans."[7]
