Grants up to £150k for orgs with turn over over £250k (Fidelity Foundation)

The Fidelity UK Foundation, established in 1988 by the Chairman of Fidelity Investments, focuses its charitable investments on strategic initiatives that will strengthen and scale up UK registered charities that are widely recognised as making an impact in their sector.

The Foundation seeks to make investments that have significant potential for measurable return, wider leverage and fundamental, lasting change. Charitable investments are mainly directed towards organisations serving beneficiaries in London, Kent and Surrey and operating in the following sectors:

  • Arts, culture and heritage - including nationally significant heritage sites, internationally recognised museums and class-leading organisations in the visual and performing arts.
  • Community - particularly early interventions and charities that help young and/or disadvantaged people achieve their potential.
  • Education - particularly initiatives that improve education outcomes for the disadvantaged, from early years through to transition to work.
  • Health - including disability, palliative care and centres of excellence involved in ground-breaking research and treatments to address chronic illness (with a particular focus on investment in specialist equipment).
  • Environment - particularly preservation and sustainable initiatives that have a positive impact on the natural world.
