The Fidelity Foundations are a group of private foundations that fund a diverse set of programs on a national scale. In addition, the Foundations fund non-profit organizations that strengthen the communities in which Fidelity Investments employees live and work. Our values of integrity, compassion, innovation, and expertise guide our investments in education, arts and culture, health, conservation, and economic opportunity.
Today, the Foundations are at an important and exciting stage in our organizational history having grown and evolved in recent years under new leadership. As our strategies and organization continue to develop, we are seeking individuals with skills and expertise that support the advancement and execution of a long-term portfolio of philanthropic investments.
As a capacity-building funder, the Foundations seek to make catalytic, impactful, and lasting investments in non-profits at strategic inflection points and support projects that substantially enhance their impact and sustainability. Many projects involve planning, infrastructure (e.g., capital, and technology), training, and other improvements to increase effectiveness. Grantmaking is executed through quiet giving, and most grants are awarded anonymously.
The Foundations’ Education Program includes the following focus areas, with an emphasis on supporting learners from historically underserved backgrounds:
• College access and success
• Innovative post-secondary models
• Early career pathways and training
Cross-cutting topics include mentorship, financial capability, and other approaches that support individual choice and success. The education team is also exploring opportunities to support non-profits in early education and care.
