Philanthropy and Social Entrepreneurship

NVCA has aligned with Fidelity Charitable (SM), a national donor-advised fund program, to bring expertise, experience, and efficiency to those who would like to simplify their charitable giving and potentially minimize their taxes. Fidelity Charitable has a specialized team who can help you leverage both publicly and non-publicly traded assets for charitable giving, including privately held portfolio company stock, limited partnership interests in the fund itself, special purpose vehicles formed to capture the carried interest, or other co-invest vehicles. With a donor-advised fund, your contributions have the potential to grow so you can give even more support to the causes you care about, and you may also be able to take an immediate tax deduction for your contributions.  NVCA members are eligible for a discounted administrative fee of only 20 bp for Fidelity Charitable Gift Fund accounts up to $5M ($2,000 annual savings on a $500,000 account). For more information, please contact Steve Mark by emailing or by calling 617-816-5637.
