Dream Big Plan
Yuanta and Fu Jen University’s Dreams Take Flight Program

Yuanta supports and encourages young people to bravely follow their dreams, and has teamed up with Fu Jen University for six years now on the Dreams Take Flight Program, which, through a diverse range of means including classes, scholarship assistance, and long-distance digital tutoring, has sought to cultivate the dreams of students in the hope that they will grow and one day bring benefits to society as a whole.

  • As of 2016, this program has guided 27 students through their university studies, and has supported a total of 556 students.
Winter and Summer School

The Dream Big Plan

To further strengthen our public-spirit, in 2016 the Yuanta Foundation launched the Dream Big Plan, integrating resources from Yuanta Financial Holdings to create a charity platform, bringing us together with nine educational and social welfare groups in need of resources, and allowing us to work together to make dreams come true for over one thousand disadvantaged students in Taiwan, by allocating resources and providing accessible educational opportunities. Yuanta also called together more than 200 Group employees to join as volunteers, and our “Yuanta Unlimited Love” Facebook page has already attracted more than 300,000 views, helping us to build and strengthen the good we do in the community, and ensuring that our efforts can brighten every corner of society.
