Founded in 1965, the Fidelity Foundation awards grants to nonprofits with the aim of enhancing their organizational capacity.
Specifically, the Foundation allocates its philanthropic investments to these sectors:
Community development/social services
The Foundation typically awards funding to organizations with operating budgets of $500,000 or more with significant, transformative projects budgeted at $50,000 or more. The Foundation considers projects from organizations of regional or national importance throughout the country, especially those with potential to influence the nonprofit sector. Ultimately, an improvement in a nonprofit’s organizational capacity should lead to better results for the community it serves. In the past, the foundation has given grants to the Greater Boston Food Bank for a capital construction project and the Boys and Girls Club of Lawrence, MA, for an endowment. To apply, click here.
