Fiduciary Trust Charitable Receives Stevie® Award for Innovation

BOSTON – June 10, 2020 – In this challenging time, Fiduciary Trust Charitable appreciates the generosity of its donors in requesting grants to provide support to nonprofits serving a wide variety of community needs. Fiduciary Trust Charitable, an independent public charity, continues to develop solutions to help donors efficiently contribute to causes that are important to them. It is therefore honored to receive a Stevie® Award in the American Business Awards® for its innovation in the development of a restricted donor-advised fund offering. More than 3,600 nominations from organizations across industries were submitted this year for consideration in a range of categories.


Many public charities, private foundations, and religious institutions’ funds are designated for restricted uses, such as supporting a specific geography, a specific organization, or a particular academic program. To focus resources on charitable missions and reduce administrative costs and complexity, some charities and private foundations seek to move a portion or all of their funds to a donor-advised fund (DAF).


Since traditional donor-advised funds typically permit grant recommendations to any IRS-qualified charity, assets from public charity, private foundation, and religious institution restricted funds often cannot be placed in a traditional donor-advised fund. Fiduciary Trust Charitable’s innovative Restricted Donor-Advised Fund Program alleviates this challenge through enabling custom restrictions on its funds.
