Yuanta is passionate about public welfare and is dedicated to the belief that the power of change starts with caring. In addition to supporting the Taiwan Fund for Children and Families’ project to protect children who have been the victims of abuse, we have also had a long-term involvement in after-care and rehabilitation projects. Furthermore, building out from a core of social concern, through promoting education and working with legal and educational organizations, we take an anti-drug message into schools and help encourage the public to focus on and participate in legal education.

Subsidiary companies including Yuanta Securities, Yuanta Futures, and Yuanta Funds also take part in environmental conservation activities, such as beach and mountain cleanups, putting the Company’s strength to use through volunteering and doing our part to help protect the planet.

Protecting Children and Young People

Yuanta has a long-standing relationship with the Taiwan Fund for Children and Families, working together to care for the youth of Taiwan for 12 years and counting. In 2018, we took an active part in the “Love You Neighbor” program. Bringing the 297 operating locations of Yuanta Securities, Yuanta Bank, and Yuanta Life together to promote the program by putting up posters and giving out stickers and flyers, we seek to build a more robust safety net to protect children from abuse.

After-Care Activities

Yuanta is also actively involved in efforts promoting judicial protection, women’s and children’s safety, and in assisting with creating employment opportunities, helping more people reintegrate into society and encouraging both the public and corporate group to attach importance to judicial protection. In 2018, we helped organize Sino-Japanese handicraft exhibit and the book launch of “Words of Bronze: Love and Hope”. For these efforts, the Yuanta Cultural and Educational Foundation was recognized in 2018 by the Ministry of Justice as an “Accomplished Organization in the Promotion of After-care”.

Teaming up with Bjørgaas Foundation to care for Malawi

From November 2017 through January 2018, we held ten charity musical events for the Yuanta Charity Music Festival, of which one helped Yuanta Cultural and Educational Foundation and Yuanta Funds raised a total donation of NTD 2 million for the Bjørgaas Foundation in Pingtung.

The Bjørgaas Foundation used the donations to organize a charity education activity called “Charity Beans English Academy,” helping elementary students from around Taiwan learn English. For every English vocabulary answered correctly, they help a Malawian farmer sell a fair-trade coffee bean, supporting their efforts to make a living.

Creating Parent - Child Reading Space

The Cultural Affairs Department of Pingtung County Government rebuilt the former home of the army school principal as the “General's House,” which was later closed before renovating it into “Tree Books”. Yuanta Futures, responding to its book donation project, donated a total of 250 second-hand books to the Tree Books, contributing to create a reading environment for parent and children.

Yuanta Charity Blood Drives

In promoting charity blood drives, Yuanta routinely communicates the beneficial health effects of regular blood donation, and has increased the number of blood drives from once a year to holding three blood drives per year, which help to maintain the stock level at the blood centers as well as nurture employees’ good habit of regular blood donation, offering further evidence of our commitment to corporate social responsibility.

Over the past eight years, a total of 13,415 bags of blood has been donated. For three years running we have been honored by the Taipei Blood Center as an “Outstanding Organization for blood donation”.

TFSR Financial Services Charity Carnival

Yuanta participated in the Taiwan Financial Services Roundtable’s 2018 Financial Services Charity Carnival at the Keelung and Taoyuan sessions in responding to its call to communicate financial acknowledge and promote philanthropy.

Led by Yuanta Financial Holdings, a team comprised of staff from Yuanta Securities, Yuanta Bank, and Yuanta Life took part in the event. Yuanta FHC Chairman Rong Jou Wang also personally attended the event to provide encouragement, joining hands in charity.
