Established in 2003, The Chen Yet-Sen Family Foundation is a hybrid charitable institution with a strategic focus on improving early childhood literacy, through the development of libraries and reading programs. The Foundation also supports experiential out-of-classroom programs which aim to improve personal development of children.
As a hybrid organization, the Foundation supports grants programs as well as operates our own Special Projects. Grants are awarded to organizations whose projects promise sustainable social impact, and are innovative and cost effective. We work closely with each and every one of the organizations we support on project planning, progress tracking and evaluation, to ensure high impact services are delivered to all our beneficiaries. Special Programs initiated by the Foundation include NGO capacity building, research, reading and library programs, incubation, etc.
The majority of the organizations and projects the Foundation supports are concentrated in selected regions of Mainland China, while we also sponsor projects in and Hong Kong and Ghana.
