About Us

When we invest in an organization, it is a partnership in capacity-building.

"When we invest in an organization, we consider it a partnership...if we can help that organization become more self-sufficient, we feel we've achieved something."
—Edward C. Johnson 3d, Chairman Emeritus, Fidelity Investments


Fidelity Investments' Chairman Emeritus Edward C. Johnson 3d and his father, the founder of the company, established the Fidelity Foundation, a private, nonoperating foundation, in 1965, launching decades of charitable investing and laying the groundwork for many future philanthropic endeavors. Since inception, the Fidelity Foundation has distributed more than $500 million dollars to qualified nonprofit organizations across the United States and Canada.
