Feel good about where you choose to send your support. The following resources can help you make more informed giving decisions.
Consider opening a donor-advised fund (Giving Account) at Fidelity Charitable to support all of the causes you care about. A donor-advised fund is like a charitable investment account, for the sole purpose of supporting charitable organizations.
In 2015, 193 countries adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These goals have the power to end poverty, fight inequality and stop climate change.
If you are interested in supporting organizations whose missions align with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, Charity Navigator has curated lists of highly rated nonprofits working towards the goals.
How do you know your giving has made a difference? Fidelity Charitable has worked with the Center for High Impact Philanthropy (CHIP), a multidisciplinary, nonprofit center housed at the University of Pennsylvania, to bring donors a series of high-impact charitable opportunities where there is an opportunity to make a collective change. Within each opportunity is background on the charitable cause, organizations working effectively in that space and suggestions of ways to support the charitable cause.
Fidelity Charitable does not endorse these organizations and provides this list for reference purposes only. All grant recommendations are subject to review and approval by the Fidelity Charitable Trustees.
