Organization Overview

Fiduciary Trust Charitable (FT Charitable) is an independent, public charity offering donor-advised funds and related services.  We partner with independent investment advisors who manage assets for each donor, taking into account donor recommendations and our investment policy.  This enables a more customized investment management approach and personal service, relative to many other donor-advised fund programs. We also have the expertise, experience, and flexibility to help donors use our donor-advised funds to meet their unique needs.


FT Charitable is a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization, making donations to our donor-advised funds tax deductible, subject to IRS guidelines. Accounts can be funded with assets from taxable accounts, as well as from trusts, private foundations and, often, donor-advised funds at other providers. A minimum of $50,000 is required to open an account and there is no minimum balance required after opening.
