Purpose & Mission
Support for various foundations, including The Foremost Foundation, was started nearly four decades ago by Dr. James Si-Cheng Chao and Mrs. Ruth Mulan Chu Chao.
Their work continues today through the efforts of the Family. The key focus of the Foundations is to help young people access higher education, thus greater opportunities to build better lives for themselves and their families and become better leaders in a rapidly changing international global community.
A second focus area of the foundations is to promote U. S. -Asia cultural exchanges. A third focus area is to support healthcare initiatives to promote greater coordination, better communications to ensure the best quality of care to the vulnerable in our society.
