Contribute a range of non-publicly traded assets to fund philanthropy
Until recently, non-publicly traded assets were a largely overlooked source of philanthropic funding1, in part because these assets can be complicated both for individuals to give and for some nonprofits to accept.
Fidelity Charitable has expertise in accepting charitable contributions of non-publicly traded assets and has seen growth in these types of contributions in recent years.
