The Fidelity Charitable Giving Report

A look at Fidelity Charitable donors and how they give

Based on an analysis of the ways our more than 104,000 donors use their nearly 64,000 donor-advised funds, the Fidelity Charitable Giving Report helps provide a picture of who our donors are and how they approach philanthropy. The data tells the story of a dynamic and diverse base of donors who actively use their donor-advised funds—called Giving Accounts—to support a wide range of charitable causes.

While donor-advised funds have been a part of American philanthropy for more than seventy-five years, their role in shaping the charitable landscape has grown dramatically over the past two decades as they have become one of the fastest growing vehicles for charitable giving. Fidelity Charitable is the sponsor of the nation’s largest donor-advised fund program, and the Fidelity Charitable Giving Report offers an in-depth look at how these increasingly popular vehicles are used in practice to support nonprofit organizations.
