Fidelity Charitable Trustees’ Initiative

The Fidelity Charitable Trustees’ Initiative is a grantmaking program of Fidelity Charitable separate from its donor-advised fund program and accepts grant requests by invitation only. The Fidelity Charitable Trustees’ Initiative’s mission is to expand giving and advance the nonprofit and philanthropic sectors through:

  • Capacity-building grants that improve the effectiveness of nonprofits that support underserved communities to help them better meet their mission; and
  • Underwriting research, tools, guidance and forums that increase the knowledge and information for the nonprofit sector as a whole or to aid donors in making smarter decisions.

Since its inception, the Fidelity Charitable Trustees’ Initiative has granted over $20 million.
