Our initiatives

We believe in philanthropy with societal impact. Since 1980, we have been helping to reform education and further medical research. To date, over HK$27 billion has been put to work to support all our initiatives, over 80% of which benefit projects in the Greater China region.

In 1981, Mr. Li Ka-shing founded Shantou University (STU), a key comprehensive university in Guangdong Province and the only privately funded public institution in the country. STU is the cornerstone project of the Foundation, with grants and contribution of HKD 12 billion to date to instigate reforms in higher education in China.

Your dedication should not be confined for your own gain, but unleash your passion for your beloved country as well as for the integrity and humanity of mankind.Li Ka-shing
