The Foundation continuously explores new areas of funding by conducting research, building networks, and making grants to test ideas and develop expertise. These new areas of inquiry are linked to the interests of the Ho Family and resonate with the values of the Foundation. Some of these Emerging Initiatives grow over time into major areas of funding. Currently, the Foundation is exploring Animal Welfare, Environment, and Vulnerable Children. Grants for our Emerging Initiatives are by invitation only.
