Milken Institute Report on Asian Philanthropy

(Hong Kong – April 13, 2023) Our Chair, Yvette, shares her experience and insights from her family’s philanthropy over the years with Milken Institute, a non-profit, non-partisan think tank focused on accelerating measurable progress on the path to a meaningful life. The Milken Institute interviewed five family principals for the report “Unlocking Asian Philanthropy-Insights from Five Families”. The report finds that Asian families’ long, rich history of charitable giving is evolving toward more formalized, strategic, and collaborative philanthropy. Families’ philanthropic motivations are multifaceted and continue to be deeply rooted in family values and personal experiences. Regardless, all interviewees hoped for growth in their philanthropy and next-generation involvement as they optimized for greater impact and continuation of the family legacy.
