CKGSB Philanthropy

About CKGSB Philanthropy

With generous support from the Li Ka Shing Foundation, philanthropy is part of the school’s DNA and core responsibility since its establishment in 2002. CKGSB’s vision is to influence the Chinese business community, advocate corporate social responsibility, and find new initiatives in philanthropy in order to promote social change. CKGSB’s mission is to build the most influential, campus-led philanthropy platform in China. We want to help students, alumni and the greater Chinese business community better understand philanthropy so that they can promote social change through their work.
