“Since we began our grants in 2008 we are proud to have been able to support a diverse range of activities ranging from large scale infrastructure projects to smaller, targeted efforts.”

As we approach the 6th year since the establishment of the Fu Tak Iam Foundation we are able to reflect on the achievements made to date and of the challenges that lay ahead. Since we began our grants in 2008 we are proud to have been able to support a diverse range of activities ranging from large scale infrastructure projects (the building of a care home for marginal youths) to smaller, targeted efforts such as providing cataract surgery for the elderly. We have also been involved in several animal related charities, environmental studies and efforts to promote Arts and Culture.

 

Projects aside, FTIF has also lent its support to the emergency relief operations mobilised after the numerous natural disasters we have encountered over the past few years. These grants, 94 so far and counting, all serve the common purpose of enriching people’s (and animals!) lives and alleviating suffering wherever and whenever possible.

 

An uncertain economic environment certainly poses extra challenges to the needy and charities alike, often compounded by tightened Government budgets reducing support in key areas. While the FTIF is certainly not immune from the challenges this climate poses, we continue to strive to dedicate our resources to the areas of greatest need. FTIF is also looking to share philanthropic best practices with other Foundations in the region.

 

What continues to be incredibly heartening are the number of charitable organisations, both established and new, who continue to do such admirable, selfless and incredibly resourceful work across Greater China and further afield in Asia. Their passion for their causes makes the role of the Foundation so rewarding but of course there is still much more work to be done in the field.

 

As always we continue to invite applications for funding on our website www.ftifoundation.org
