Mr. Bui’s nonprofit experience started at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Garden Grove in education programming, after which he joined a corporate foundation in evaluating impact and grant-making. Prior to joining J.P. Morgan, Mr. Bui worked for U.S. Trust as a philanthropic specialist, providing advice and guidance for nonprofits and foundations.
Fidelity Charitable is a 501(c)(3) public charity established in 1991. We make it easy for donors to leave a lasting impact through philanthropy—in particular, through our donor-advised fund, called the Giving Account.
We have streamlined the process of strategic giving for a broad range of donors, allowing them to contribute many types of assets, and plan their giving more systematically, maximizing their generosity.
