CEO Foundation

Fueling the future

At the CEO Foundation, we are dedicated to driving impact and purpose by promoting opportunities for the next generation of leaders, innovators, and changemakers. Kids are naturally equipped with glimpses of grandeur and novel ideas. We believe these youthful grandeurs can materialize and their ideas are achievable when armed with resources to realize their visions. We further believe that leadership ought to possess heart. It takes heart to recognize inequalities and it takes an extraordinary leader to evoke meaningful change.

The CEO Foundation is committed to supporting
philanthropic initiatives
and deploying capital investments to support a
pathway for a brighter future.
-Jackie Pham Nguyen

About the foundation

The CEO Nguyen Foundation was created as a living legacy for three children – Colette, Edison, and Olivia – who perished in a fire during the devastating 2021 Texas winter storm that left millions in the dark and freezing cold.

The mission and vision championed by the foundation are the same values that Colette, Edison, and Olivia’s mother saw in them, and is the cornerstone of the CEO Foundation.

In the wake of the tragedy, there was an outpouring of support from people across the nation for Colette, Edison, and Olivia’s mother, Jackie Pham Nguyen. Jackie started the CEO Foundation, in part, to ensure that the funds that were generously donated were responsibly invested back into the community. Her goal is to fund initiatives that promote the foundation’s core values while making investments that will ensure the long term viability of the foundation so it can serve children for generations to come.
