A coordinate covalent bond is a covalent bond where both of the electrons being shared come from one atom.

A coordinate covalent bond is when one atom is responsible for giving off a lone pair that contributes to making the bond with another atom without the second atom having to sacrifice one of their own electrons to create the bond.

Coordinate Covalent Bonds are also important in relation to lewis acids and lewis bases. A lewis base is a molecule that gives both of its electrons away to form the coordinate covalent bond while a lewis acid is a molecule that accepts both of the electrons.
