The Fidelity Charitable Trustees' Initiative is a direct grantmaking program of Fidelity Charitable separate from its donor-advised fund program. Last fiscal year, the Trustees' Initiative made 23 grants totaling $6.4 million to strengthen the resilience, sustainability and effectiveness of the social sector's infrastructure.
To achieve this mission, the Trustees' Initiative provides funding for the shared resources, information, networks, research and advocacy that all donors and nonprofits need to achieve their intended impact. Its grantmaking is focused on programs, projects and organizations that:
- Enhance individual donors' ability to make effective and informed giving decisions.
- Strengthen intermediaries and networks that provide information, research and advocacy needed by nonprofits to achieve their intended impact.
