Fidelity UK Foundation

The Fidelity UK Foundation is a UK registered charity whose objective is to strengthen the long-term effectiveness of charitable organisations. Established in 1988, its principal donor is Fidelity International, a leading international asset management company.

Taking an investment approach to grant making, we fund strong charities where we feel we can add lasting, measurable value. We seek to support strategic initiatives that enable charities to build the organisational capabilities they need to enhance the services they provide to a wider range of beneficiaries and achieve improved long-term sustainability.

In considering each proposal, we carefully examine each aspect of an organisationís project idea, management team and financial situation before committing our resources, in order to ensure that a grant can achieve tangible results. To learn more about the way in which proposals are evaluated and to assess whether your organisation and funding need fall within the Foundation's grant-making criteria, please read the Guidelines.

If, after reviewing the guidelines, you believe that your funding request is likely to meet the Foundationís grant-making criteria, please refer to the How To Apply section to understand the next steps in the Foundationís application procedure and details of the information you will need to provide.

Since the Foundation receives many more requests for funding than it is able to meet, we regret that not all applications that fall within our guidelines will receive grants.

Thank you for your interest in the Fidelity UK Foundation.
