Founded by the late Dr. the Hon. Tin Ka Ping, GBM, MBE, in 1982, The Foundation has all along been committed to promoting the development of education in Mainland, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Macau. With a mission to foster ethical education, the inheritance of Chinese culture, and the integration between diverse civilisations, the Foundation aims to contribute to the country by improving the quality of education. The Foundation has generously donated to HKBU since 1997, having supported a variety of the University’s endeavours, including the establishment of the Tin Ka Ping Education Endowment Fund, and the launch of the Mainland China Visiting Scholars Programme, the Hong Kong Creative Drama Festival, the 4E Whole Person Servant Leadership Programme, and the Chinese Writers’ Workshop, as well as supporting the HKBU Development Fund and various conferences, innovative service-learning programmes and its institutional advancement at large. In 2022, the University received a generous donation of HK$10 million from the Foundation in support of the Character and Ethics Development Scheme for Students at HKBU, which aims to help develop young people’s character and promote the inheritance of Chinese culture.
