Since its founding in 1971, Feng Tay Group has actively supported local communities as an integral responsibility. The Feng Tay Cultural Foundation (renamed as the Feng Tay Cultural and Educational Foundation in 1993), was established in 1981 in pursuit of this belief. The Foundation focuses on the following three areas and plans ahead to execute related activities.
||Provide finance aid to students in need to promote equal opportunity in education.|
||Promote environmental protection concepts to create a sustainable environment.|
||Sponsor programs in community activities to promote quality lifestyle.|
To support the education of economically disadvantaged students, Feng Tay Cultural and Educational Foundation has given a total of NTD 169 million (USD 5.63million) to students from elementary school to college since 1987. The Foundation has collaborated with National Yunlin University of Science and Technology to conduct an after-school tutoring program since 2011. The program offers various educational activities and organizes field trips for students from disadvantaged families. The Foundation also provides emergency aid to families who experience unexpected financial hardship so that their children’s education will not be interrupted. Recognizing the importance of environmental protection and food safety, the Foundation established AGRIC Social Enterprise Co., Ltd. in 2016. With the vision of working toward a better environment, fair trade and ecological balance, AGRIC aims to promote organic farming products, improve food safety, and help local farms to raise product value in Taiwan. To give back to the community, the Foundation has hosted events such as “Yulin Legend” running event and annual Teeball Tournament to promote sports awareness among local residents and students, and also collaborated with local artists to hold various music and art events to bring new creative perspectives to the community.
