Our Journey

The Chen Yet-Sen Family Foundation was established in October 2003 to put philanthropy at the centre of the family’s ethos.

Founder James Chen was inspired by his grandfather, Mr. Chen Zao-Men and his father, Mr. Robert Yet-Sen Chen, who believed passionately in giving back to society. Their lifelong dedication to supporting the development of their communities has shaped the philanthropic principles of the foundation.
