Our initiatives

We believe in philanthropy with societal impact. Since 1980, we have been helping to reform education and further medical research. To date, Mr Li Ka-shing has invested over HK$30 billion in projects covering education, medical services, charity and anti-poverty programmes, with about 80% of the projects in Mainland China and Hong Kong.

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.
