The Fidelity Foundations are a group of private foundations that fund a diverse set of programs on a national scale. The Foundations are committed to advancing the long-term vibrancy of communities through capacity-building investments in non-profits from across arts and culture, education, conservation, health, and economic opportunity. We have a deep history of funding organizations in Boston and New England for over 50 years. We also support non-profits that strengthen the communities in other regions of the country where Fidelity Investments employees live and work.
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 significant and strategic philanthropic investments.
As a capacity-building funder, the Foundations seek to make catalytic, lasting investments in non-profits at strategic inflection points and support projects that substantially enhance their impact and sustainability. Our values of excellence, integrity, innovation, collaboration, and a deep sense of humility guide our grantmaking which is executed quietly, and most grants carry external anonymity.
Through its regional program, Fidelity Foundations make grants to non-profits across its sector focus areas. Fidelity Foundations prioritizes its regional, place-based giving in 11 communities across the United States and Canada in the following locations: Albuquerque, NM; Covington, KY/Cincinnati, OH; Dallas/Ft. Worth, TX; Denver, CO; Jacksonville, FL; Jersey City, NJ; Merrimack, NH; Raleigh/Durham, NC; Salt Lake City, UT; Smithfield, RI; and Toronto, Canada.
