Mission/Giving Statement: The mission of Fidelity's charitable giving program is to provide funding and volunteer support to the Albuquerque-area community with particular emphasis on providing the coaches, tools and experiences necessary to help underserved students achieve school success and pursue their own unique path to college and work.
Research tells us that students who stay in school not only contribute to a productive and viable workforce, but impact the economy in numerous positive ways. Through Fidelity at School, the firm and its employees support efforts designed to change the path of a student, fund a critical school initiative, or develop a program that will generate a positive impact on future generations.
Fidelity Investments is dedicated to making a positive impact in the communities where its clients and employees live and work.
