Outlook 2023:
Perspectives on End-of-Year Giving

Charitable giving is one of the enduring pillars of American holiday traditions, with families kicking off the season by giving thanks—and paying it forward.

To understand how end-of-year philanthropy is being prioritized in 2023 compared to 2021 and what factors might influence giving this year, Fidelity Charitable surveyed more than 1,000 people. Questions included:

  • As 2023 closes, do you plan to give at year’s end?
  • If so, will you give more or less than the previous year?
  • What kinds of charitable activities do you plan to participate in?

The findings, including how in-person engagement is back on the rise, might surprise you.
