Imagine smarter charitable giving

What if you could support all your favorite charities with just one donation? That's the power of a donor-advised fund. Ours is called the Giving Account.

What is a donor-advised fund?

The Giving Account

The Giving Account was introduced in 1991 when Fidelity Charitable—the vision of the chairman of Fidelity Investments—was founded. Today, we work with over 100,000 donors like you to support more than 200,000 charities and make more of a difference every day.

When you donate to your Giving Account, you’re making a tax-deductible donation to us.

But because your account is a donor-advised fund, you advise us on how to grant the money out to your favorite charities.

Your donation is also invested based on your preferences, so it has the potential to grow, tax-free, while you’re deciding which charities to support.
