The LUA Foundation Limited is a non-profit organisation set up by the Life Underwriters Association of Hong Kong Limited in 1998, aiming to encourage volunteer work among members and to provide funding for charitable organisations and worthy causes throughout the world. Initially funded by an endowment from the LUAHK, all foundation activities will reflect the caring and sharing spirit of LUAHK members as well as their commitment towards the life insurance profession and the community.
Our Main Objectives
The Foundation will consider applications received from individual applicants in Hong Kong, as well as organisations, for funding requests for worthy causes which are by no means limited to the life insurance industry. There are no perset limits for applications though preference will be given to requests that fall within the Foundation’s major objectives to improve the quality of life for those in Hong Kong, which include:
1. Funding educational and organisational programmes that will benefit the people of Hong Kong, through a better understanding and awareness of social and community commitments and services.
2. Counseling and outreach services for those in need.
3. Granting scholarships and bursaries to encourage and support both education and research.
4. Providing food, shelter, clothing, emergency relief, medical assistance and financial assistance as well as training and education when and where necessary.
