National Philanthropy Day is November 15th
In honor of National Philanthropy Day1, Fidelity Charitable would like to encourage donors to reflect on what inspires you to give and how you may be able to make even more of a difference.
National Philanthropy Day is a special day designated to recognize and pay tribute to the great contributions that philanthropy — and those people active in the philanthropic community — have made to our lives, our communities, and our world.
National Philanthropy Day was first celebrated in 1986 and since then, the day has been recognized by numerous state, provincial, and local governments across North America.
This National Philanthropy Day, consider getting others involved in charitable giving by sending a Gift4Giving® eGift from your Giving Account® to anyone you like. A Gift4Giving® is a unique charitable gift which lets the recipient recommend a grant to a charity of their choice.
Thank you for your continued commitment to the nonprofit organizations you support.
