Pam Norley

Pamela leads Fidelity Charitable in its mission to grow the American tradition of philanthropy by making giving accessible, simple, and effective. A public charity with the nation’s largest donor-advised fund program, Fidelity Charitable helps over 200,000 donors give more, more strategically—ultimately increasing their impact.

Prior to joining Fidelity Charitable, Pam’s career spanned nearly two decades at Fidelity Investments in a variety of leadership roles. Throughout her adult life, giving back has always been both a core value and a source of personal inspiration. Seeing the growing impact of Fidelity Charitable’s donor-recommended grants for charities and communities across the country—nearly $35 billion granted since we were founded in 1991, including $5.2 billion in 2018 alone—is what gets her up in the morning.

Her deep understanding of the nonprofit sector, combined with her legal and leadership experience, makes Pam an asset to the Foundation as it seeks to increase the effects of its work. “The work done by companies, academia and nonprofits every day at the Research Triangle Park is an engine for an incalculable amount of good locally, nationally and internationally,” says Pam. “I’m honored to join this distinguished group of leaders to support the continued growth and success of this major global innovation hub.”
