Today’s employees have high expectations: 70% of workers—and 87% of Millennials—want their employer to be philanthropic. But cultivating a purpose-driven workplace with modern charitable benefits and an effective corporate social responsibility program is easier said than done. That’s where we come in.
Working with Fidelity Charitable can help you attract and retain talent, put your diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) values into practice, and position yourself as a trustworthy, socially conscious brand. With decades of philanthropic expertise and a suite of solutions to fit your unique needs, we can help take your giving programs to the next level.

A unique benefit for your employees
Level up your benefits strategy and help your employees increase their overall financial wellness with smart giving strategies. Timely charitable education and our donor-advised fund can be a gamechanger for employees, and a valuable tool for recruitment and retention.
Expert guidance to grow your company’s giving
Corporate citizenship programs should be authentic, engaging, and impactful, but that’s easier said than done. Our experts are here to help you design and implement best-in-class philanthropic programs aligned with your corporate values and culture.
Contribute a variety of assets, including appreciated company stock and qualify for a tax deduction.
Potentially grow the charitable balance with multiple investment options, including socially responsible funds.
Give to local, national, and international causes now or over time.
Give with more impact
Because you can fund the Corporate Giving Account with cash, appreciated stock, or even non-publicly traded assets like private business interests or cryptocurrency, you can potentially increase your tax savings and give more to the causes you care about most. Even better, you can invest your company’s charitable balance for potential growth—increasing what you have to give. From just one initial tax-advantaged gift, you can support multiple charities on a timetable that aligns with your company’s unique needs.
Reduced internal costs
We’re here to handle the administrative details of your giving, including charity due diligence, so you can save time and rest assured that all grants will go to qualified public charities. When compared to the reporting and management requirements of other giving vehicles like foundations, the Corporate Giving Account can save you time and money.
And, to take it to the next level, our Philanthropic Consulting Program can help you outsource projects like nonprofit identification, grant rounds, and impact reporting.
Streamlined reporting and giving analysis, all in one place
Appointed company contacts can use our online portal, giving you 24/7 access to your Giving Account, including grant confirmations, statements, and tax reporting documents. You can also analyze your giving with consolidated reports about which sectors, charities, and regions your organization has supported.
As part of our robust corporate service model, you’ll have access to a dedicated Premium Services Accounts Manager who can help answer any questions you have around guidelines, transactions, or opportunities to increase your impact.
Whether you want to make a gift of non-publicly traded assets or transition your private foundation to a donor-advised fund, our team of experts has more than 30 years of experience and can provide guidance to help you reach your philanthropic goals.

The Corporate Giving Account makes your organization’s charitable giving accessible, simple, and effective. Fees for the Giving Account cover a wide range of added benefits to help you take your corporate philanthropy programs to the next level.
After your initial irrevocable contribution, your company can recommend grants starting at $50 to support the same charities you do now.
0.015% to 1.04%
The ability for your contribution to be invested and potentially grow tax-free is a key benefit of a donor-advised fund. This fee varies depending on the investment options you choose.
Between choosing a cause to support, understanding charitable tax deductions, or figuring out how to donate stock, your employees might not know where to start with giving back. Charitable education can differentiate your benefits program, boost your company’s culture of giving, and help your employees make more satisfying financial plans.
We make it easy for you to help your employees achieve their philanthropic goals. You can start by sharing information about smart charitable strategies, including using a donor-advised fund such as the Giving Account—an affordable and tax-efficient way for a broad base of employees to give back.
