The Swire Group Charitable Trust
Established in 1983, the Swire Trust is the philanthropic arm of Swire Pacific Limited and a registered Hong Kong charity. Overseen by a Philanthropy Council, the Trust receives annual income from Swire group companies and disburses funds to non-profit organisations in Hong Kong and Mainland China.
We aim to create positive change in Education, Marine and Arts through supporting registered non-profit organisations primarily in Hong Kong and Mainland China.
The Swire Trust’s vision is to promote diversity, equal opportunity and sustainable growth, focusing on three core areas:
- Education: to enhance education equity, quality and innovation for disadvantaged children and youth in Hong Kong and Mainland China.
- Marine: to help create sustainable marine ecosystems in Hong Kong and Mainland China through policy change, public engagement and scientific research.
- Arts: to promote an inclusive Arts sector, and to use Arts to address social issues in Hong Kong.
Swire Pacific’s operating companies share a common goal of making a positive impact on the communities which they serve. Staff actively volunteer their time and skills to participate in a wide array of community initiatives and in addition to in-house programmes, Swire Pacific also partners with various NGOs in order to extend outreach and broaden our impact.
